In 1927, the world’s first television was put up for sale and, since then, it has been part of homes around the world. Millions of families came to gather around this device to watch a movie together, watch the news or enjoy a particular event that was broadcast at that time.
The television has evolved over the years. The first televisions were large and very heavy because they were created with materials such as cathode tubes that served as an image generator, but current models have improved in all aspects using LED technology to display high-quality images.
Not only are the technical aspects, it has also provided us with all kinds of content such as movies, series, contests and programs of any genre. But are there contents that help us teach science and technology? The answer is yes.
Science And Technology For All Ages
The science has become a common thread in many television series, including some series were based solely on science-speak.
Many of those who read us will have thought of the series Once Upon a Time … man, a series of cartoons where we explained the evolution of human beings from the first appearance of hominids on the planet to the space race.
Although this series had more aspects. One of them is Once Upon a Time … the human body where the protagonists explained how our body worked at certain times, such as when we are sick.
It is possible to say that there are more programs on science and technology that are not of animation. For example, Spanish Television has the program Here the Earth. A magazine where meteorologist Jacob Petrus and his team of researchers allow us to see the unprecedented side of our planet.
They explain how health, economics and even art can be conditioned by meteorology, all from an entertaining point of view for the whole family.
Another program to highlight is The Brain Hunter. The scientific popularizer Pere Estupinyà explains how science is used as a tool and can help us live better and understand reality. We can also know the fascinating world of scientists thanks to their interviews.
It should be said that there is another chain that is committed to making content about science and technology such as DMAX. This chain creates programs like Curiosities of the Earth, which shows that satellites are a great tool to know our planet, and not only to scan or photograph the surface of our planet.
They also have the program How the Earthworks, a documentary series in which several specialists try to solve scientific dilemmas surrounding the blue planet.
The television can serve as a tool for learning new concepts, though, as happens in many ways, watching television many hours can lead to negative consequences.
So we recommend that you take your remote control and enjoy watching high-quality programs where you can learn in an entertaining way.
