  • White-Nose Trouble
    Monday, August 20
    8:00 pm on UEN-TV 9.1
    We go to Cahokia State Historic Site in Illinois where archaeologists are using modern technology to probe this historic city and reveal secrets about the ancient civilization. A team at Carnegie Mellon University is creating the next generation of wearable electronics. We discuss the most abundant photosynthetic organism on Earth, Prochlorococcus, a tiny plant like bacteria. And we take a look into the White-Nose Syndrome that's hitting West Coast bat populations.

  • Chimney Swifts
    Monday, August 27
    8:00 pm on UEN-TV 9.1
    A group of migrating birds, Vaux’s Swifts, are known for the dazzling display they create as they funnel into brick chimneys to roots for the night. These birds are losing their chimney habitat, but one group is working to create a new habitat for this fascinating bird. We take a look into Darwin's unseen manuscripts. Calwave Power Technologies is harnessing the renewable power of ocean waves to produce both electricity and freshwater. And we see how Penn State students are predicting perfect sunsets.

  • Climate & Extinction
    Monday, September 3
    8:00 pm on UEN-TV 9.1
    Discover a variety of instruments used to survey the climate’s past and present. We discuss a new study that is re-evaluating the extinction of thousands of animal and plant species. We visit the largest planetarium in the western hemisphere where visitors can experience the cosmos in a whole new way. And we take a look at how Fitbit technology is helping students at Lenoir-Rhyne University track and monitor Blue Herons.

  • Gravity Derby
    Wednesday, August 15
    11:30 pm on UEN-TV 9.1
    On this episode of SciTech Now, we uncover new research at the University of Texas that is helping to predict clouds and weather patterns that affect solar grids. We discuss Tesla in space and planetary protections. We see how churches are moving into the 21st century by connecting worshippers in a digital space. And we travel to North Carolina where young derby drivers are putting their petals to the metal in a series of races where their only power is gravity.

  • Flight of the Bat
    Wednesday, August 8
    11:30 pm on UEN-TV 9.1
    Join researchers at Brown University and get an inside look at how the characteristics of bat flight could advance human technology. Scientist, Ainissa Ramirez, discusses the possibility of a genetic marker pointing towards a higher likelihood of one person having concussions more often than others. We discover how computer modeling is helping in the efforts to understand how surface water and ground water interact. And we look at better ways to be prepared in the event of a mudslide.

    Breaking objects is part of the normal day to day operations at the Materials Test Center. Learn how these experts are breaking everyday items in an effort to save lives. Discover the car seat of the future that potentially could have five expressive behaviors. Learn how scientists are working to improve our memories by testing an implant that could help, especially for those who suffer from cognitive disorders. And we visit the Texas Department of Transportation where they are teaming up with research institutions to find ways to better warn wrong-way drivers.

    Join us as we take a tour of a bog in Black Moshannon State Park in Pennsylvania and discover carnivorous plants. We discuss the discovery of seven Earth-sized exoplanets orbiting a single star called, Trappist-One, and their potential to support life. We explore the common ground between science and religion and we visit an exhibit at the Witte Museum that reveals how we use math every day, whether we realize it or not.

    Arizona State University curator Laurence Garvie shows us what can be learned from each unique space rock that has landed on Earth. Ainissa Ramirez, a scientist, author, and a self-proclaimed 'Science Evangelist,' discusses the secrets behind spacesuits. We explore ten new technologies in the bestselling book called Soonish: Ten Emerging Technologies That’ll Improve and/or Ruin Everything. And we take a look at how bio-engineers are developing degradable bones that, once placed in a human body, will eventually be replaced by a person’s own bone tissue.

    Paleo-artist Gabriel Ugueto reveals the aesthetic challenges he encounters when trying to accurately draw extinct animals like dinosaurs. Everyday items like watches and backpacks can now be turned into wearable technology, but we’ll take a look at high tech fibers and fabrics that could set new expectations in how we use and wear our apparel. Neuroscientist Alex Keene from Florida Atlantic University shares his research on the blind Mexican Catfish and how he hopes the fish could unlock the mystery of sleep loss. And we take a look at the power of goats and how they are helping fight invasive species in the Great Lakes Basin area.
