This edition: Science and the Environment

Episode Details

Original tape date: April 1, 2014.

First aired: April 22, 2014.

This month’s Science & U! focuses on our environment and how we can work at making it... and keeping it... green and healthy. We examine the work being done to keep pine beetles in check in the New Jersey Pine Barrens, how batteries and fusion could be the energy of the future, a look at the progress that’s been made on keeping the Hudson River clean and a local school teaching kids all about going green.
