Sounds Like KPAC

This winter, to encourage and celebrate the talented young musicians and artists in our listening area Texas Public Radio is hosting a talent competition that will culminate in the opportunity for the winners to share their work at a public event on January 26, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. The competition, “SOUNDS LIKE KPAC,” offers an opportunity for students to share how radio station KPAC 88.3 FM inspires them to create.

For a quarter of a century, humans have been interacting online through the World Wide Web, and along with the easy access to information have been sea changes in the way we do business, converse, and even fall in love. What influence has the Internet had on the way our minds work? Have we become a nation of “skimmers” that can no longer find time to read a novel? What about the addictive nature of social media, gaming, gambling or even online pornography? How has the Internet changed us?

Those nacho-flavored chips you're eating? They probably taste that way because of micro-flavor particles covering the surface. Engines that burn cleaner fuel? Thank nanotechnology. Sports equipment that lasts longer, flies faster... lighter weight material for aerospace and engineering, even biological machines within the human body... Even a decade ago there were over 800 publicly available products that could be classified as using nanotechnology, which is defined as science, engineering, and technology conducted at the nanoscale, which is about 1 to 100 nanometers.


Texas Public Radio celebrates the season with holiday programming to get you into the spirit, or simply offer a moment of reflection. Join us on KPAC 88.3 FM, KSTX 89.1 FM, and all of TPR's TexNet stations for a cornucopia of programs, including music, spoken word, and in at least one instance... the inexplicable.

On KPAC 88.3 FM

Think Science: Bees

Aug 20, 2018

Many people have some understanding of why bees (and other pollinators) are important. So at our last Think Science event on August 17, we opened by asking, “Do you like to eat?” This leds to a discussion of the importance of bees in pollination and our food supply, why bees are in trouble, and what we as consumers can do to ensure the health of both the insect population, as well as humans.
