The premiere episode of "TechKnow" features three young science experts who bravely dove right into making a new show with an unusual approach to understanding how innovation has changed our everyday lives.
Meet Cara Santa Maria, who has a background of hard science training (she has a master's in neurobiology) and journalism (she was a senior science correspondent for The Huffington Post). She calls that unique combination being a "science communicator."
Next you'll meet Phil Torres, a conservation biologist who splits his time between research in the Amazon and a PhD program at Houston's Rice University.
Our third contributor this week on "TechKnow" is Kosta Grammatis, an engineer and innovator who invented a bionic eye for a blind filmmaker, worked at SpaceX and started a non-profit to extend the reach of the internet in developing countries.
All three contributors will be back with exciting new stories, and in the weeks to come you'll meet a whole team of experts whose backgrounds in science, technology and other technical trades give them a uniquely informed and analytical perspective.
Watch "TechKnow" on Sunday at 7:30PM ET/4:30PM PT on Al Jazeera America.
