KQED's QUEST is a new multimedia series about the people behind San Francisco Bay Area science and environmental issues and how their work is changing the way we live. Do you know what is in your own backyard?

QUEST includes a half-hour weekly HD television program, weekly radio segments, an innovative website and unique education guides. QUEST's geographic coverage spans from Mendocino to Monterey and from Sacramento to Santa Clara, and focuses on nine content areas: astronomy, biology, chemistry, engineering, environment, geology, health, physics and weather.

QUEST Radio airs every Friday at 6:30am and repeats at 8:30am on KQED FM 88.5 and KQEI FM 89.3. Explore urban environmental challenges such as pollution, toxics and threats to our food supply. Investigate new technologies, emerging trends in science and the impact of public policy on our natural resources.
