The goal of The Futures Channel is to "produce and distribute high quality multimedia content which educators in any setting can use to enliven curriculum, engage students and otherwise enhance the learning experience."
The Futures Channel strives to connect STEM subjects to the real world, putting what students are learning in context, so that they might envision their own futures.
The Futures Channel also provide an avenue through which science, engineering, and technology professionals can reach out to their future potential workforce and spur their interest in their fields.
Each week The Futures Channel features a selection of new movies and educator favorites that are available for two weeks. Some movies, however, are always available because of their popularity. You can find these by clicking on any of the "Real World Movie" categories.
