|Scope is a children's science show that provides a half-hour of fast, funny and informative scientific entertainment targeted at children aged 8-14 years. Scope will look at the world from a child's point of view and investigate a different theme each week to explore the science all around us. These programs focus on the theme of The Body. Episodes include: Sports Body, Human Body, The Brain, Human Senses, Human Movement and Weird Body Science.
Ever wondered what sport your body is built for? How it copes with the rigors of training? Or how it adapts to different sporting techniques? Join Dr Rob as he works up a sweat and SCOPES out all the science behind the Sports Body!
Even though we come in many different shapes, sizes and colours - we all have the same organs, the same systems and the same functions...but what are they, and how do they work? Join Dr Rob as he SCOPES out all the science behind the human body!
Breathing, eating, talking, walking, thinking, in fact everything to do with your body is controlled by your brain. Join Dr Rob as he puts on his thinking cap and SCOPES out all the science behind the brain.
Our senses are sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. Join Dr Rob as he SCOPES out all the science behind the five human senses. And, once again the ordinary becomes extraordinary, under the SCOPE.
We humans are pretty complex beings, made up of lots of intricate interconnecting parts. Every movement of our body is the result of the co-ordination of bones, muscles, and ligaments. But have you ever wondered how it all works?
WEIRD BODY SCIENCE
Our bodies are amazing biological machines, but they can also be, well, quite strange! This episode of SCOPE is dedicated to those weird and wonderful body-isms: knuckles that crack, muscles that cramp, fingers that go pruney, as well as goosebumps, yawning and more!
