Television producer Frank Graff, associate producer Rossie Izlar and educational producer Paula Edelson collaborate to make science come alive through UNC-TV Science, on-air and online. In addition to the weekly broadcast segment, UNC-TV houses the videos on this UNC-TV Science website where additional related multimedia materials — photo galleries, blogs, Q&As, articles and infographics — will be posted.
All content is aligned for educators to North Carolina Essential Science standards to allow for easy use in the classroom. Our state is chock full of exciting stories to tell, from the latest scientific findings of university research to their practical applications in laboratories and businesses throughout the state. The series promotes awareness and understanding of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) subjects critically important to our state and nation’s future. All the programs produced are vetted through the North Carolina Science Now Advisory Board, composed of prominent North Carolina science and education professionals, to ensure their scientific accuracy and merit.
The project is made possible through a generous grant from GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). Come back often to discover new posts and explore this new interconnected, dynamic approach to educational storytelling.
