Ice Age Mysteries From Prehistoric To Present
Lace up your hiking boots as our adventure team explores the mysteries both big and small along Wisconsin’s scenic Ice Age Trail. From east to west, they hike with experts on different sections of this 1,000-mile trail to discover glacial mysteries such as drumlins, moraines, eskers, kames and kettles. They also find some surprises along the way that hiss and croak, while uncovering some truly weird science about what glaciers did to the land some 13,000 years ago.

The Chemistry Of Life & How it Affects Everything On Planet Earth
This program unravels some of the foundational chemistry that affects everything on planet earth. It begins with the primary conversion of simple chemicals into complex compounds that form the building blocks of all life. Using the further conversions that occur in a dairy cow, the team decodes how plant material is converted to a variety of dairy-related foods that impact our lives.

Know Your H2O - Where Does Clean Water Come From?
Our team of science investigators gets their feet wet with the challenge of discovering where clean water comes from and all the people and science involved in the process of making it safe to drink.

Cost Of Clean Water - Sources & Solutions To Pollution
To discover sources and solutions to pollution in watersheds, our team of “eco-investigators” wades into the science of water quality. From climbing city rooftops to kayaking down remote rivers, the show explores the challenges and technology experts use in protecting our precious water resources.

Plant Diversities - How They Create Life From The Raw Elements In The Environment
The science sleuths investigate how plants can create life from the raw elements in the environment, with some even making their own fertilizer from air. They also explore the different ways plants are grown and pollinate, and the vast variety of uses and products for almost every aspect of modern life. This episode is sure to “grow" on your perception of how plants impact our everyday lives.

Avian Stewards - Ecosystems For Bird Species
The team explores how avian stewardship is helping provide habitat for a variety of bird species and how everyday people can become part of this growing ecosystem movement.

Understanding Wetlands Ecosystems
Join our adventure team as they wade into the murky science of understanding our wetlands ecosystems. They paddle, splash and probe their way across various wetlands to discover the water cycles, ecology and human influences that impact wetlands.

Understanding Forest Management & Related Ecosystems
Hang on as our adventure team zip lines their way through the trees and science of understanding forest management and related ecosystems. They explore from high canopies all the way to the leaf litter to uncover the lifecycle of recyclable forests. Along the way, they team up with experts who manage, harvest and produce the various forest products that we use every day.

Einstein's Law of Thermodynamics Relating to Savvy Sustainability
Join the explorers as they dive into the physics and science of unraveling Einstein’s law of thermodynamics relating to savvy sustainability.

Extreme Survival Strategies In Extreme Weather
Our adventure team explores the survival strategies of various species that overcome the extremes in weather and other environmental factors to survive, each with their own unique adaptations.

Waste Resource Management: Becoming Stewards Of Sustainability
This program explores waste resource management and how youth can become stewards of sustainability.  It looks at all that goes into a landfill, how recycling happens, what to do about new emerging hazardous waste products and the future of the industry through the eyes of young leaders.

The Science Of Modern Biofuels
Did you ever consider the fact that the fuel in your car’s gas tank is mostly ancient sequestered carbon about 400 million years old? But part of that mixture is also modern recycled carbon made from today’s renewable fuels like ethanol and biodiesel. In this program you’ll discover how science and technology can convert corn, corn oil, beef fat and even used French-fry grease into modern biofuels.

The Science Of Turning Crude Oil Into Gasoline

Our team helps unravel the complex chemistry and physics of how a hi-tech oil refinery turns worthless heavy crude into the transportation fuels that drive and fly our society. You won't believe what they uncover in rearranging hydrocarbon molecules like Legos! They also explore the refinery’s impacts on local air and water quality.

The Science & Farming Practices Of The Beef Industry
Join our adventure team as they dive into the science and real life farming practices of the beef industry. From nutrition to cooking, they explore fun and useful information that will help make you beef savvy in the store, on the grill, or at the farm.  So come on, it’s time to beef up your knowledge.

The Science & Technology Of Today’s Dairy Farming Industry
Join our adventure team as they explore the science and technology of today's dairy farming. Spanning the history of old-time milking to the hi-tech present, the hosts discover how the dairy industry has changed dramatically in the past 100 years from raising cows to milking them.

The Science & Technology Of Industrial Sand Mining
Going undercover as "kids on a mine tour" our investigators reveal the technology and physics of a modern industrial sand mine. They focus on the science and practices that impact the environment while decoding the unique geology behind the secrets of what makes something as simple as sand so darned valuable.

Careers In Agriculture & Soy Production
This program examines some of the careers that surround soy growth and production.  Whether it's being a veterinarian for large animals, flying drones, brokering commodities or selling and repairing farm equipment, various skill sets complement the life of a soybean farmer.

Dam Removal & River Restoration
Today, thousands of communities across the country face the challenges of removing outdated dams that threaten to fail. They wrestle with the questions of how to remove these old dams and restore the rivers. This program reveals how one community struggled to discover the real worth of their river, then worked through the social, emotional and scientific aspects of removing their dam.
