Description:

This PBS website supplements the TV series "Rough Science," where "five scientists are challenged to put their collective scientific knowledge to practical use." The scientists travel to the Mediterranean, Carriacou, New Zealand, and Death Valley. For each adventure, the website offers a series of challenges such as generating electricity, making soap, making paper and pen, and developing a metal detector. Along with learning how the participants became involved with science, students can read diary entries of their adventures. The Web Challenge offered in Series 2 is a fun way to learn about magnetism and electricity.
