At Houston's Sharpstown High, once a notorious "dropout factory," a high-stakes experiment is under way to rescue students from the edge.

    Nova [#3804H] Making Stuff Cleaner Most modern materials are dangerous to the environment, but what about cleaning up our world? Batteries grown from viruses, tires made from orange peel oil, plastics made of sugar, and solar cells that cook up hydrogen-these are just a few glimpses of a new generation of clean materials that could power devices of the future. In Making Stuff Cleaner, David Pogue explores the rapidly developing science and business of clean energy and examines alternative ways to generate it, store it, and distribute it. Is hydrogen the way to go? One scientist is even using America's abundance of chicken feathers to create a cheap way to make hydrogen cars safer. What about lithium batteries? Does this solve an energy problem or create a new dependency - in this case, on South America for a different kind of limited resource than oil? Can scientists instead develop a process in which batteries run on molten salts found in cheap abundance in the US or on genetically engineered viruses? Pogue investigates the latest developments in biobased fuels and in harnessing solar energy for our cars, homes, and industry in a fascinating hour full of the "stuff" of a sustainable future. duration 56:16   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nova [#3805H] Making Stuff Smarter What can nature teach us about building smarter materials? Can we create materials that sense and respond? "When describing 'smart materials,' one analogy scientists give is the evolution from the first Terminator robot, a machine made of metal and circuitry, to the shape-shifting 'liquid guy' in Terminator 2," said Making Stuff producer Chris Schmidt. Smarter looks into the growing number of materials that almost seem alive - able to react, change and even learn. An Army tanker truck that heals its own bullet wounds. An airplane wing that changes shape as it flies. For inspirations and ideas, scientists are turning to nature and biology and producing some innovative new developments in materials science. Knowledge and inspiration drawn from nature are showing scientists new ways to give our materials amazing new abilities. By understanding how geckos climb even smooth walls, scientists have created a gecko adhesive that let's robots do the same. Studying the properties of skin has led to the development of self-healing protective foam. And Pogue literally goes swimming with sharks to understand a different kind of skin that is intriguing scientists. Scientists are modeling a material after sharkskin to develop an antibacterial film that, when sprayed in hospitals, could eliminate MRSA and other anti-biotic resistant bacteria. Pogue concludes "Smarter" with a visit to a scientist who has created a material that may make Harry potter's invisibility cloak a reality! duration 56:16   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Truly CA: Our State, Our Stories [#608H] California Is A Place: The State In Four Acts Four short films look at different aspects of what it means to be a Californian.
    BORDERLAND - It is real and striking. In some places it stands 18 feel tall and looks like the gates of Mordor, in others it looks like it was put together with a stapler. It runs from the Colorado River directly into the Pacific. Physically it's confusing. Politically it's puzzling. Ideologically, it's complicated. But for Dick and Ron, who both live within a few miles of the CA/Mexican border, defending it is simply a matter of protecting themselves and preserving their own beliefs.
    BIG VINNY - Once upon a time he was a local celebrity, the voice and face of a successful used car business in Alameda. Today, everything has changed. The business is dead, the lots sit empty, and Big Vinny is out of work. But he still remembers the good times.
    SCRAPERTOWN - In order to become a member of the Original Scraper Bike Team, you must be a resident of Oakland, at least 7 years or older, retain a 3. 0 grade point average, and create your own Scraper Bike. After ten rides the Scraper Bike King & his captains will decide if your bike is up to standards and you will be considered a member. Come along for the ride.
    CANNONBALL - Fresno was the California Dream. Own a car, a house, a pool - everyone wanted it, and the wonderful world of credit made it possible. But now, with foreclosures running wild, the dream is dry. Thousands of pools in the back of foreclosed houses are festering in the hot Central Valley sun. For most people, this is tragic, but for some, it's an opportunity.
