Best Science and Technology TV Shows
Here’s a look at the best TV shows dedicated to revealing the wonders of science and engineering.
April 22, 2020
TV is packed full of science and technology content. Unlike the not-too-distant past, STEM programs on TV are no longer relegated to NOVA and Bill Nye the Science Guy. More than one network is devoted to 24 hours of science each day, and STEM shows also proliferate on non-science devoted networks.In curating this collection, we focused on the technology and engineering aspects of science programs. We steered clear of the natural-world shows of animals and minerals. We also stuck with shows that are currently in production, even though some of them go on hiatus for months or years while developing new episodes.Stay tuned to this website, because we will return next month with the 15 Best Fiction-Based Science and Technology Shows on TV.
