FUTURES was designed to motivate interest in mathematics by showing students that math is the language of the future--and a passport to creative and rewarding jobs in fields ranging from fashion and skateboard design to architecture and space exploration.

Optics - Scanning the night sky for new constellations or capturing a moment of life in a photograph, mankind seeks to expand its vision through the use of lenses and light. Viewers get a look at careers at places like AT&T Bell Labs, where fiber optic cables are used for high-speed communication, and Pacific Bell, where technicians demonstrate a two-way video conference call. Also featured are astronomers at the Multiple Mirror Telescope in Arizona; developers of advanced film concepts at Eastman Kodak Company; commercial photographer J.P. Morgan; and artists at Lasermedia. Classroom guest: photographer Mary Ellen Mark.
