If the words “material science” sound boring to you, then you obviously had the wrong teacher in high school. Enter David Pogue and PBS’s NOVA, who prove that science and technology are fascinating, entertaining, and–dare we say it?–cool. NOVA debuts the four-part series “Making Stuff” at its new night and time tomorrow at 9pm, and GetGlue is there with stickers and an exclusive clip from the show to reward users who check-in.
Hosted by New York Times tech guru Pogue, “Making Stuff” explores how science is developing new and better ways to make things–both everyday and extraordinary–using both futuristic technology and observing nature. Pogue dives with sharks to learn about the antibacterial properties of sharkskin, travels to a demolition derby, and sees cancer-fighting mini-robots in action. We’re psyched about this exclusive clip that shows Pogue trying his hand at a new task.
PBS was one of our iPhone app launch partners, and we’re excited to continue to grow with them. Tune in to NOVA on its new night and time–Wednesdays at 9pm (check local listings)–and check-in to NOVA each week with GetGlue through our apps or our website to earn stickers for “Making Stuff.”

PBS is well known for their unbiased, intelligent approach to news and politics,and that’s never been more necessary than in the heated 2010 midterm elections. We’re excited to extend our partnership with PBS for a special set of limited-time-only stickers for tonight’s election coverage.
Whether you vote Republican, Democrat, independent, or something else entirely, PBS NewsHour and its lauded team will have the midterm elections covered both online and on TV. At 10 p.m. Eastern, viewers can tune-in exclusively online for updates on how the nation’s races are looking, and when the clock hits 11:00, coverage can also be seen through your local PBS station. If you check-in to NewsHour via our apps or our website, you can earn these stickers.
Don’t forget to go to the polls today, and remember to check-in to the PBS NewsHour election coverage throughout the evening to earn your stickers. Only die-hard Beltway followers can earn the second sticker, so make sure you stay up late (and check-in) for all the latest news.

For decades, PBS has been the home of television that both enlightens and entertains its audience, and its stations currently play host to a variety of impressive offerings. We’ve been proud to work with them on stickers for shows such as Frontline, Nova, and Masterpiece, and as Alex alluded to last week, we’re excited to announce a broader partnership with PBS.
Now fans of shows such as Nature, Charlie Rose, and POV can earn rewards for tuning in to their favorite series on PBS. Additionally. current events junkies can earn stickers that demonstrate their devotion to daily news programs such as PBS NewsHour and Tavis Smiley.
As cool as those are, we’re really psyched about exclusive and limited stickers for a number of much-anticipated fall miniseries and documentaries, including Sherlock, Circus, and The Tenth Inning, Ken Burns’s follow-up to Baseball. Stickers for these and other series can only be earned when the programs are aired, so don’t set your DVRs; mark your calendars to watch these shows and earn the stickers before they’re retired.
For those who just can’t wait for the shows to air, we also have trailer stickers for these programs available now. To earn these, fans simply need to watch the trailers for the series, check-in, and share with their friends on Twitter and Facebook.
PBS has an exciting fall planned, and we’re happy to be partnering with them for their ongoing and limited series alike.
