The Program is Great at the way it portrays how the Kids of today are getting involved with the Problems of Conservation that need to be solved. Especially where it shows their Ideas and Details of their work and accomplishments. I Feel That The Show Should use its influence to Educate more People about the Readily Available Aerated Autoclaved Concrete !!

This series ponders what the planet might look like in a few decades' time, and the answer is truly mind-blowing. Some scientists believe that artificial intelligence will blend with robotics to make human-like beings commonplace, for instance, as evidenced by the remarkable inventions that already exist today. They're different sizes and shapes, and each serves a unique purpose, but together they indicate that the stuff of futuristic sci-fi movies is less fiction than you might think.

Xploration Earth 2050 is geared toward tweens and teens who are interested in the sciences, but its appeal isn't limited to this group. Even for the lay observer, these are fascinating stories of human innovation, many with emotional implications for the groups of people they most benefit. Ultimately this intriguing show is a great reminder of the value of STEM education and the limitless possibilities it can inspire.
