SHOW ME SCIENCE - TECHNOLOGY: ROBOTICS - CHALLENGES FOR THE FUTURE

New innovations in robotics are presented while highlighting two very unique and effective robotics challenges. For elementary school students, the KISS Institute for Practical Robotics uses hands-on robotics programs to communicate the excitement, knowledge and practical understanding of science. The DARPA Robotics Challenge is a competition of robot systems and software teams representing some of the most advanced robotics research and development organizations in the world. The robots must complete a series of challenging tasks selected for their relevance to disaster response. The importance of robotics to human safety and exploration is discussed.

INNOVATION LAB - THE ART OF DESIGN

This episode delves into the discussion of what distinguishes art and design? Most good design is firmly rooted in the art world. Often, professional designers are inspired and informed by work that is created through artistic endeavors. Modern mass production has made it nearly impossible to pinpoint the origin or inspiration for design of everyday objects. It is certain, how- ever, that artistic innovation and creativity are essential to the advancement of quality design that not only serves a function but also satisfies the user on a more abstract and artistic level. One company that has mastered walking the fine line between art and design is Ammunition. In this episode we talk to their creative leaders as well as the executive in charge of Design at the MOMA in New York City.
