Science Channel's Catch It Keep It
July 17, 2009

Imagine a storied $1,800 Gibson Les Paul guitar surrounded on all sides by a chemical compound that burns at more than 4,500 degrees Fahrenheit. Cringe as a timer counts down to the detonation of one year’s supply – 672 bottles – of beer. Picture an expensive scooter being launched off an 80-foot long ramp suspended 26 feet off the ground. What fate will meet all of these treasured items? Total annihilation… unless three skilled challengers use science wisely to invent, design and build a contraption within 48 hours that will save the cherished prize. If they can catch it, they can keep it in Science Channel’s all-new series, Catch It Keep It, premiering Friday July 17th, 2009, at 10PM (ET/PT).

During each episode of Catch It Keep It three contestants test their scientific and engineering mettle against Science Channel’s “engineer of destruction,” Mike Senese, who devises dastardly schemes uniquely designed to obliterate the prize of the week. The contestants must brainstorm, plan and construct a way to rescue the item within the span of 48 hours – teams can build anything from a blast/fire-proof box to a giant net used for catching objects in mid fall. Host Zach Selwyn guides viewers through the pressure-packed 48 hours of organized chaos as the team works tirelessly, not only against the clock, but also against passionate differences of opinion and seemingly never-ending obstacles. Catch It Keep It airs weekly Fridays at 10PM (ET/PT).

The Catch It Keep It experience continues online at sciencechannel.com where the network is opening the message boards to our armchair engineers watching at home.
