DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery's press release, April 2013) Who will become America's next great innovator? Discovery's THE BIG BRAIN THEORY: PURE GENIUS is looking for the next great technological mind that could change the future. The eight-week series premieres Wednesday, May 1 at 10 PM E/P on Discovery Channel. "The series features some of the greatest young minds in America. There is a lot at stake within the show itself, and in terms of what it signifies," said Host Kal Penn, who starred in the hit film franchise "Harold & Kumar" and worked on outreach to young Americans in the White House. "I love education and science. It's awesome to be part of such an exciting new series for Discovery Channel that celebrates all the amazing things our generation can do through creative thinking, the arts and STEM - science, technology, engineering and math." While there are countless shows searching for the next great singer, dancer and chef, there is nothing quite like this on television. Each week, THE BIG BRAIN THEORY: PURE GENIUS presents a seemingly impossible engineering challenge to the 10 contestants.
