Company Description Now going into its 44th season, NOVA is the most-watched science series on American television and in the world, reaching an average of five million viewers weekly. It is also one of television's most acclaimed series, having won every major television award, most of them many times over.

Each week NOVA takes an in-depth look at a particular topic or individual in the science field. NOVA's topics cover all branches of science and engineering, and NOVA captivates its viewers with its unique way of presenting each topic.

The series remains committed to producing in-depth science programming in the form of hour-long (and occasionally longer) documentaries, from the latest breakthroughs in technology to the deepest mysteries of the natural world.

NOVA’s position as the leading science television series in the US is matched by a strong and growing presence online. NOVA Next, our science journalism website, features in-depth reporting on stories from leading journalists as well as some of the biggest names in science, technology, and engineering. Another new digital platform we’ve developed is NOVA Labs, where "citizen scientists" can actively participate in the scientific process. From predicting solar storms and designing renewable energy systems to tracking cloud movements and learning cyber-security strategies, NOVA Labs participants can take part in real-world investigations by visualising, analysing, and playing with the same data that scientists use.

Finally, the NOVA Education site offers a growing collection of NOVA resources for bringing science, technology, and engineering to life in educational settings. This free digital library is tied to teaching standards and includes video, audio segments and interactives.

Not only does NOVA have such a strong presence on television, but it also has a powerful web presence. You can also read about significant science stories as told by some of the biggest names in science, technology, and engineering on "NOVA Next."
