Science on the SPOT HD Video Podcast
The Science on the SPOT original web video series from KQED's QUEST goes behind the scenes at local Bay Area labs, follows breaking discoveries, and gets you special access to obscure science locations and collections, plus much more. We drill down on one place, one concept, one person. Visit our website at kqed.org/quest.
KQED's most ambitious local offering ever, QUEST includes a half-hour weekly HD television program, weekly radio segments, an innovative website and unique education guides. QUEST's geographic coverage spans from Mendocino to Monterey and from Sacramento to Santa Clara, and focuses on 9 content areas: astronomy, biology, chemistry, engineering, environment, geology, health, physics and weather.
Recent episodes include: nanotechnology, stem cell research, science of fire, physics of baseball, big waves, bees, otters, lunar missions, and alternative energy. QUEST Television airs in Northern California every Wednesday at 7:30pm on KQED 9HD.
And now, in its six season, KQED’s QUEST, also known as QUEST Northern California is working closely with six public broadcasting partner stations to expand its science reporting model nationally, piloting the production of a variety of science and environment stories on television, radio, and the Web, including the creation of educational materials aligned with state science standards. QUEST partner stations include: QUEST Nebraska (NET), QUEST North Carolina (UNC-TV), QUEST Northwest (KCTS), QUEST Philadelphia (WHYY), QUEST Ohio (WVIZ,WCPN, ideastream), and QUEST Wisconsin (WPT,WPR,ICS,ECB).
