Adolescence is a time of trial and error, of the highest emotional highs and the lowest lows. By adulthood most of us have accrued enough experience to have an instinct on the right way to deal with most situations. But adults often forget that as children our instincts were usually very unreliable because, without enough time to develop extensive experience, instincts are driven primarily by the urge to experiment.

THE TECH SHOW on Discovery Science presented by Dr Jack

On Friday nights at 8pm starting in July 2011 Dr Jack Lewis presents “THE TECH SHOW” on the Discovery Science channel. In 26 half-hour episodes Jack takes viewers on a journey through some of the latest technological breakthroughs in engineering, science and biomedicine. We explore new developments in robotics, renewable energy and tornado physics. We encounter a wide variety of nutty inventors, hell-bent on creating the most bizarre water, land and air-borne vehicles the world has ever seen. We see how engineering can be guided by the latest biological research that gets to the bottom of how evolution has solved various problems by giving certain creatures amazing abilities. And we even discover what neuroscience can learn from the art of magic.
