Now in its fourth decade, WGBH Boston’s NOVA television series remains committed to in-depth science programming in the form of one-hour documentaries and long-form miniseries—from the latest breakthroughs in technology to the deepest mysteries of the natural world. In addition to the weekly television broadcasts, NOVA extends its award-winning science reporting both online and in classrooms, with an extensive list of resources and original content—including short-form videos, science and education blogs—available on the program’s website. Among the offerings are NOVA Next, NOVA’s award-winning digital publication featuring in-depth articles and commentaries from some of the most respected journalists, scientists, and engineers; and NOVA Labs, a groundbreaking new digital platform where “citizen scientists” can actively participate in the scientific process by visualizing, analyzing, and sharing the same data that scientists use during real-world investigations—from predicting solar storms and designing renewable energy systems to learning cybersecurity strategies. In the classroom, NOVA Education tailors digital resources for STEM educators and offers a free educator library featuring videos, audio segments, lesson plans, and interactives, all aligned to teaching standards. NOVA also provides viewers with the latest science news via Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, newsletters, and more.
