In the Grass, On the Reef follows the research of two Florida State University marine ecologists. Dr. David Kimbro and Dr. Randall Hughes study coastal ecosystems such as salt marshes (In the Grass) and oyster reefs (On the Reef). These systems provide us with many services: sheltering commercially important crabs and fish, cleaning the water, preventing erosion, to name just a few. Follow their research journey with this series of videos.
Science360 Knowledge Network provides series that showcase the latest wonders of science, engineering, technology and math.
Understanding the behavior of our atmosphere is vital to preserving the future of our Earth, and the natural resources we rely on. Scientists across the country are dedicated to researching the areas of atmospheric research and Earth system sciences. Welcome to UCAR, the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, where a consortium of universities, academic affiliates, and scientists are connected to better understand everything from solar storms to wildfires.
Synergy is an experimental program that catalyzes partnerships between artists and research scientists. With an emphasis on communication and collaboration, Synergy aims to provide meaningful creative and intellectual experiences for both the general public and for participating artists and scientists. We carefully select and match artists and scientists to work together to formulate a shared voice. We then present the outcome of these collaborations as group exhibitions that invite the public to engage with this unique collision of art and science. Synergy was conceived in early 2012 in affiliation with Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
From Thomas Edison’s light bulb to Wilbur and Orville Wright’s flying machine, inventors and inventions transform the way we communicate, travel and live our daily lives--thanks to the creative process of innovation. That process is highlighted in this video series The Science of Innovation. In celebration of the 165th birthday of one of America's greatest innovators, Thomas Edison, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and NBC Learn, produced this 11-part series narrated by NBC News' Ann Curry highlighting innovators from across the country.
The Geospatial Revolution Project is an integrated public service media and outreach initiative about the world of digital mapping and how it is changing the way we think, behave, and interact. The mission of the Geospatial Revolution Project is to expand public knowledge about the history, applications, related privacy and legal issues, and the potential future of location-based technologies.
For 60 years, NSF-supported graduate research fellows (GRFs) have made outstanding contributions to science and engineering and to the nation. As part of the celebration of this anniversary, NSF sponsored the "GRFP: Creating the Future" Video Competition. Current GRFs were asked to submit 90-second videos showing how their research can help shape the future for them as individuals, for their fields of work, and for the world.

CreatureCast is a collaborative blog produced by members of the Dunn Lab at Brown University, along with assorted friends. This project, which is focussed on zoology in the broad sense, serves as a forum to present original content that we have produced and observations by others that we find interesting and beautiful. Support for some original podcast content is provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF). Mollusc themed podcasts are supported by a collaborative NSF research grant to Casey Dunn, Gonzalo Giribet, and Nerida Wilson.
This series provides a look at the history of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, the life a scientist leads while on the ice, and the results from the data obtained by scientists studying the WAIS Divide.
You’re free to post and distribute the WAIS Divide Series. For more information, please contact Jeremy Polk, jpolk [at] nsf.gov.
The videos presented in this series are a hybrid of documentary filming and graduate thesis research. These short videos are meant to educate the world by creating more awareness of the knowledge and findings coming out of universities and disseminating those findings visually so everyone can digest them.
