Rocky Mountain Wildflowers: Standing Their Ground!
Despite being stuck where they are, plants find a way to help them survive in all weather conditions and still disperse their pollen seeds. From the plains to the continental divide, from spring through fall, learn about the mysteries of Colorado's native plants with Dr. Amy Keller and Dr. Cheryl McCutchan of "What's Blooming Boulder"!
Humans have developed cities through a variety of geographical historical contexts. Using modern day knowledge about cities, explore cities throughout history (including our very own Denver!) with Kevin Priestley of the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG).
Astronomy Under South American Skies
With some of the clearest skies and impressive telescopes, Chile's climate makes for ideal conditions for astronomers to study the cosmo in the southern hemisphere. Mike Lucibella has recently returned from a two-week trip across Chile visiting several of these sites to share some of the amazing technology and what they've been studying in the skies above.
