“BrainStormers”  – The series is premiering Sunday, March 22, 2015 at 9pm ET with two back-to-back episodes on The Weather Channel.

“Brainstormers” follows three Colorado-based backyard geniuses – a father, son, and his friend – who are on a quest to build and test inventions that either fight bad weather or harness its power for everyday use…while on a budget!

In every episode, Poppy, Ryan, and Bill test their ingenuity and tackle weather issues by leveraging brainpower with the power of Mother Nature to repurpose what some might consider junk. Every build is always filled with challenges, from creating a homemade mosquito trap or solar water heater to fixing a nearby town’s wind generator, and the road to success is filled with setbacks, revelations and a lot of fun.5
