Emerging Science

9 episodes, 16 podcasts| FLV & MPEG-4 | 30 min/ep. | ~150 MB/ep.

This engaging new TVseries is involved in cutting-edge scientific inquiry – 
Vermonters at thefrontiers of science. The program delves into such topics as 
energy,transportation and the technology of social sciences. The series is 
designed toeducate and inspire – and to document the success of Vermont’s 
scientificcommunity. Even though it is meant for a local audience, the program 
presentsthe subject of each episode so well that anyone anywhere, curious 
enough tolearn, can enjoy the content.

Season 1——————————–

Episode 1: Nanotechnology
Nanotechnology is our ability to engineer specific attributes of materialsand 
machines by controlling their features at an amazingly small scale — 
onebillionth of a meter. At UVM, a scientist gives a glimpse of how 
nanotechnologymay increase the efficacy of cancer drugs.

Episode 2: Weatherand Climate Change
Scientists from UVM, Lyndon State College, andthe Fairbanks Museum and 
Planetarium in St. Johnsbury explain how the earth’sclimate system works and 
explore the impact of global warming.

Episode 3: Water and The Landscape
This episodeexplores a complex system — the Lake Champlain watershed. UVM 
facultycollaborate, using their expertise in geology, hydrology, ecology, 
computerscience and other disciplines to develop complex modeling. Their work 
will helpto quantify human impacts on Vermont’s water systems

Episode 4:Remote Wireless Sensing
Looks at how remote wireless sensing isbeing applied to enhance health and 
quality of life. One example is monitoringthe strength of structures like 
bridges. In other applications, computerscientists are developing ways to 
monitor environmental conditions and naturalresources.

Season 2 ——————————–

Episode 1: Energy
Host Amy Seidl visits withVermont scientists to explore the history of energy 
in human society, examininghow we use energy and the challenges and 
opportunities associated with adaptingto new, renewable sources. Included: how 
Vermont scientists are contributing tothe growth potential of wind energy and 
helping redefine the electric grid toaccommodate alternative energy sources.

Episode 2: FoodWebs
This episode explores two Vermont “food webs”: the aquaticfood web of Lake 
Champlain and the terrestrial food web in the time since wolvesdisappeared from 
the Vermont landscape. While food webs can be relatively simpleto understand, 
Vermont scientists are delving into their complexities bymodeling one of the 
smallest self-contained food webs known: the aquatic habitatin the pitcher 

Episode 3: Technology of SocialSciences
What are the technological tools used by today’s socialscientists to understand 
the behavior of large populations? This episodeexplains how Vermont scientists 
are studying child behavior and “teaching”robots how to learn. Also, a look at 
how the Internet is affecting our behaviorand how data mining enables 
scientists to understand the collective behavior andemotions of hundreds of 
thousands of people.

Episode 4:Transportation
This episode starts with a lesson in how thecombustion engine works, then 
investigates the challenges of continueddependence on gasoline vehicles in the 
face of climate change and declining oilreserves. Also, a look at emerging 
transportation alternatives includingelectric vehicles and a renewable system 
called “vehicle-to-grid.”

Episode 5: Fresh Water
This look at one ofVermont’s most plentiful resources also includes a broader 
discussion of thestatus of fresh water across the U.S., and highlights case 
studies and researchprograms – from coastal Maine to the Mississippi bayou to 
the dry landscapes ofthe West. What are scientists doing to ensure clean water 
for our future?
