Come to a New Mexico PBS Science Café! A clip from an episode of NOVA scienceNOW, Nature or a comparable program will be screened. An expert on the topic will attend to answer questions & have an open discussion with the audience.


Fiery volcanic eruptions, titanic floods, and grinding ice sheets are among the mighty forces that have shaped our land. A forgotten world existed long before our own when the North American continent was once covered by deserts the size of Africa, vast inland seas and longlost mountain ranges.

Come to the March New Mexico PBS Science Café and watch a segment of NOVA: Making North America and then join a discussion with Dr. Karl Karlstrom, Geologist and Professor at the University of New Mexico Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences. Dr. Karlstrom will discuss the geologic evolution of landmarks like the Grand Canyon-Rocky Mountain region and New Mexico.
