If the words “material science” sound boring to you, then you obviously had the wrong teacher in high school. Enter David Pogue and PBS’s NOVA, who prove that science and technology are fascinating, entertaining, and–dare we say it?–cool. NOVA debuts the four-part series “Making Stuff” at its new night and time tomorrow at 9pm, and GetGlue is there with stickers and an exclusive clip from the show to reward users who check-in.
Hosted by New York Times tech guru Pogue, “Making Stuff” explores how science is developing new and better ways to make things–both everyday and extraordinary–using both futuristic technology and observing nature. Pogue dives with sharks to learn about the antibacterial properties of sharkskin, travels to a demolition derby, and sees cancer-fighting mini-robots in action. We’re psyched about this exclusive clip that shows Pogue trying his hand at a new task.
PBS was one of our iPhone app launch partners, and we’re excited to continue to grow with them. Tune in to NOVA on its new night and time–Wednesdays at 9pm (check local listings)–and check-in to NOVA each week with GetGlue through our apps or our website to earn stickers for “Making Stuff.”
