"The program is aimed at interesting students in engineering careers. Each program asked a question about one of these engineering fields: aeronautical, chemical, electrical, heat and power, human, hydraulic, metallurgical, military, mining, nuclear, petroleum, and structural. A student, engineer, and a teacher explored specific engineering problems, using models, films, photos and demonstrations." --1958 Peabody Digest.
