ECO=KIDS EXPLORE: ETHANOL

With today's high fuel costs, it is time to start looking beyond petroleum and into renewable resources to power our vehicles. Ethanol is a clean-burning fuel derived from plants, primarily corn. The corn is ground, cooked, fermented, distilled and dehydrated, then ready for use. Ethanol is combined with gasoline to produce a cleaner fuel that doesn't emit as many greenhouse gases as pure gasoline. Pure ethanol has not yet been approved to fuel our vehicles, but it is the fuel of choice for racecars. Indy cars operate on 100% ethanol fuel. By mixing gasoline with ethanol, we can extend our fuel supply. Join us as the Eco Kids explore the production of ethanol and highlight the importance it holds in the Green Power movement.

ECO=KIDS EXPLORE: GEOTHERMAL ENERGY

Simply put, geothermal energy derived from heat produced by the core of the earth. Geothermal energy is one of the oldest renewable resources used by humans. It has been used since the Ancient Roman times as a heat source. Recently, we have begun to harness that energy as a source of power. Geothermal power plants take the heat from the earth and bring it to the surface to create steam that spins a turbine. We have a constant supply of heat from the earth. The challenge is finding where it is strongest and bringing it to the surface. The Eco Kids will guide us through this process and explain a few different ways that geothermal power plants operate. Find out how experts are working to fine tune the process and make geothermal power plants more affordable and useful across the country.

ECO=KIDS EXPLORE: HYBRID CARS

The first hybrid car was introduced in 1905. It had two distinct power sources working together to make it run; gas and electric power. However, using only gasoline back then was cheap and easy to power, and the hybrid car was forgotten; until recently. Since the fuel widely used now is a non-renewable resource and becoming increasingly less affordable, the hybrid car is making a comeback. Hybrid cars are operated by a computer system called the Digital Drive Line. When you step on the gas pedal, you are telling the system how fast you need to go and the car decides whether to use gas, electric power or both. The benefit of the hybrid is that instead of running on gas for an entire trip, it uses non-polluting electric power when possible. The hybrid car is ideal for city driving and traffic. By using less gas, hybrid cars help cut pollution and helps save drivers money at the gas pump.

Solar power is defined as the energy we produce by converting sunlight into heat or electricity. It is one of the most abundant and affordable sources of energy available. However, it is difficult to harness and impractical in some parts of the world. So, it is important to explore in-depth, the process of converting sunlight to power. The three primary ways to produce solar power on a large scale are solar power generating plants, photovoltaic cells and solar thermal heaters. The Eco Kids will take us through each process of energy conversion to help us better understand this clean energy technology.

Wind is a natural resource that is readily available and virtually everywhere. Wind power is defined as the process of turning the kinetic energy of the wind into electrical energy. Humans have been harnessing the power of the wind for around 2,000 years. The Dutch made the windmill famous. Find out how the large wind turbines are built using a simplistic design and modern technology. They operate completely autonomously by rotating with the force of the wind. The blades turn on a rotor that is connected by a shaft to a generator that creates electricity. With the Eco Kids, we'll explore how the use of wind power is growing and becoming widely used throughout the world. It is an efficient way to use a clean renewable resource.

ELETRICITY: FORCE THAT CHANGED THE WORLD

The Force that Changed The World documents the massive change electricity has had on the civilized world over the past century, and what it holds for the future. The ancient Greeks first discovered attractive electric forces when they rubbed amber with wool. In 1600, William Gilbert discovered that glass and diamonds behaved like amber and called these materials electrics, based on the term electrum, the Latin word for amber. From Ben Franklin to Alessandro Volta, Andre Ampere, and George Ohm, advances in understanding electricity were made. From the telephone to the television and from the refrigerator to air conditioning, we have reached the point where the whole world is but a key stroke away.

FUTURE OF WATER, THE: PART 1 - THE WATERLORDS

Management of the world's fresh water supply will determine global political stability and economic development. Many countries will experience internal conflicts over rights to water. There is enough water for everyone in the world, however, the question is who should pay for it, how much it should cost, and who should receive it. For the first time in history, the majority of the world's population lives in cities, and supplying these cities with sufficient water will be a difficult task that has the potential to cause many social conflicts. This struggle for control of water has led to riots in many areas of the world including South Africa and Spain where water-rich regions hold power over water deficient regions. Disputes over water are also disputes between countries. This is taking place between the ten countries that share the Nile River Basin in Africa. In Asia, the fight over control of its large rivers is a struggle of life and death and will have enormous consequences for billions of people.

WORLD'S DREAM STAGE, THE

Beijing, the capital of China, has rapidly grown into a city of architectural genius. With the opening of the National Center for Performing Arts designed by world famous French architect Paul Andreu, (Paris' Charles de Gaulle Airport,) Beijing now hosts the largest ellipsoid in the world at over 6 million square feet. Complimenting "The Bird's Nest, Beijing's Olympic Stadium, the silver dome-shaped grand theatre is affectionately dubbed "The Egg," and is covered with 2000 titanium panels and 1000 pieces of shining glass. It is strategically built on Beijing's Chang-an Avenue, an area filled with architectural history spanning 600 years. This "Dream Stage" is surrounded by a magnificent clear sky and a man-made lake. The highly sophisticated Center seats 6,500 people and is made up of three performance halls: the Opera Hall, Concert Hall and Theatre Hall. No only is it an architectural marvel, but also a landscape wonder with pleasant gardens, and expertly designed engineering. From sound engineering to structural engineering. "The World's Dream Stage" will take you on a personal tour and in-depth presentation of this magnificent landmark in the capital city of China.

POWER PLAY - FOSSIL FUEL

Our fossil fuel addiction is no longer healthy; the implications for planet earth are nightmarish, but the replacement of fossil fuels may mean a golden opportunity. Transitional cars may run on hydrogen; solar, wind, hydroelectric & coal-driven sources of power will help reduce the catastrophic greenhouse effect and ease the stranglehold of the oil-producing countries. Currently one third of the world has no access to commercial energy; said Gandhi "The world has enough for everybody's NEED but not enough for everybody's GREED."
