(Silver Spring, MD) – Welcome to the do-it-yourself instruction manual for humanity’s greatest modern-day inventions. You will need: a ton of curiosity, a healthy dose of awe and a sense of humor. Step one: Tune into Science Channel on Wednesday, June 22 at 10PM. Step two: Sit back and join an awesome cast of brilliant scientists (and people who just love science) on HOW TO BUILD…EVERYTHING while they break down the most complicated tech and machines into a few simple steps. Step three: go on social media to share your newfound knowledge and bask in the glory of knowing how to build everything.

HOW TO BUILD…EVERYTHING features a cast of whip smart and hilarious personalities including: comedian and former airplane mechanic Alonzo Bodden, science communicator and bug expert Alie Ward, real life doctor and Jane the Virgin’s Keller Wortham, Nerdist science editor Kyle Hill, tech expert and futurist Veronica Belmont, mad inventor Eric Gradman, astronaut Leland Melvin, actress Alison Haislip, racecar driver Jessi Combs, and so many more. Augmented with CGI, our brilliant commentators will take us through each build, while a retro-style test lab demonstrates scientific concepts. Each episode also features experts from specific fields for topics featured, from stunt women to tank commanders. 

“We continue to explore the ingenuity behind engineering and manufacturing while introducing a new group of this generation’s science vanguards,” said Marc Etkind, general manager of Science Channel. "It's a great time for Science Channel as we fuel the brand with mind-blowing content."

Structured in the spirit of a home installation guide, each half hour episode of HOW TO BUILD… EVERYTHING breaks down the step-by-step process behind some of the world’s most complex apparatuses in a way that armchair engineers and curious minds can follow. From an Apache helicopter to a hovercraft, a cruise ship or a satellite, each episode features three machines as part of a tongue-in-cheek instruction manual.

The first season will walk audiences through how to build a state-of-the-art laser-guided cow milking machine, your very own 20-story cruise ship, a tandem vibratory roller aka steam roller aka a cartoon bunny-flattening machine, and a ton of other mind-blowing engineering marvels.

HOW TO BUILD…EVERYTHING is produced for Science Channel by Citizen Jones. For Citizen Jones, the executive producers are Jonas Bell Pasht, Jonah Bekhor and David Wechter. For Science Channel, Wyatt Channell is executive producer.
