FUTURES was designed to motivate interest in mathematics by showing students that math is the language of the future–and a passport to creative and rewarding jobs in fields ranging from fashion and skateboard design to architecture and space exploration.
Animal Care – Cheetahs slink around a field biologist as she makes entries about their behavior on her laptop computer. A technician feeds a “milkshake” made of herring fillets and cream to a baby penguin. A wildlife biologist releases a giant condor from a mountaintop. A veterinarian clips an elephant’s toenails. An equine technician hooks up sensors to a racehorse to monitor its heartbeat as it runs on a treadmill. From zoos and wildlife rehabilitation centers to horse farms, and veterinary hospitals, viewers get an inside look into the careers of animal care. Classroom guest: Muttley the dog.
