NASA 360 is a 30 minute television series focused on a wide range of NASA-esque topics such as engineering, space travel, computing, mathematics, and a variety of science, technology and engineering career spotlights. The series shows how NASA has helped to change, and continues to reimagine our existence here on Earth by examining how the technology developed by, or for, NASA is being used right here in our society in everyday products and circumstances. Hosted by Johnny Alonso and Jennifer Pulley (through 2012), the show is geared toward a younger audience (middle to high school) but provides deep thinking topics that is enjoyable to all.
Tech Throwback is a fun walk into the past with host Bill Robert showing us stuff that is both “Cool, and Old School”.

Bill breaks down the usage of the different computers, software titles, games, radios, phone, and audio electronics in an interesting overview from the NACAM studio in North Andover MA. Geared toward an older generation that may enjoy a walk down memory lane, this enjoyable series is a well produced and informative show for gear heads and nostalgia-driven individuals.

Shorter filler segments
The National Science Foundation provides us with a variety of different programs that are less than 10 minutes in length. We use these shows as “bicycle” programs to fill in the gaps between feature series and Municipal meetings. They span a variety of topics within the science spectrum. Watch for segments of these shows to follow our regularly broadcasted programs. Each of these shorts are also included as part of the half hour Science 360 series listed above. However, these excerpts stand alone as needed to fill in air time between shows.
This animated series of short videos acts as a video glossary to define specific scientific terms or concepts in a fun, easy to understand way. In each episode you’ll learn what it is, why researchers study it, and what it might be used for. The content of each episode will be appropriate for all age groups, although some concepts may be high-school level science.
