About SciTech Now

Join us for an all-new season of SciTech Now – the show that brings you the latest in scientific innovations, technological advancements and breakthroughs in research that aim to shape our future in amazing new ways.

Hosted by Simon Perez, Associate Professor of Journalism at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Communications and Emmy Award winning newscaster – we explore how those at the forefront are working to find answers and new approaches to pressing problems. As science, technology, mathematics, engineering, business and manufacturing continue to evolve at a rapid rate, we follow stories of those pushing the boundaries from all across the nation as well as right here in Central New York. We aim to understand how this region and regions across the country make an impact on this ever-changing landscape.
