Think About  is an ongoing series of short video episodes for air overseas on the American Forces Network (AFN) Family Channel and will be available for use domestically, online and in classrooms and other educational venues.

The goal of Think About is to inspire and educate young viewers about the wonders of the natural world and to plant the seed for further investigation and thought.

Think About was created and produced by the Defense Media Activity‘s Radio and Television Production Office (RTPO). The episodes were filmed in studio at the Defense Media Activity’s production facility at Ft. Meade, Maryland and also on location at a variety of interesting placing, including the Smithsonian National Zoo, The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory and The National Aquarium.
