From the Sun, to the planets, comets, asteroids and even the vast spaces in between our Solar System is swimming with science. And what better way to explore it all, than to take a trip around our celestial neighbourhood with Dr Rob.
Crows, magpies, ant-lions, ibis; there are many animals that live amongst us in our urban environment - so how do they do it? This week on Scope we are looking at the animals with which we share our lives! We go looking for turtles, find out how to re-create the outback in the middle of a city and go hunting for ant-lions.

This week Scope is flexing its considerable muscle - it is the light and heavy of all things strong! Join us as we get to work with some heavy rescue tools, take a closer look at some bones and get some heavy lifting done with cranes!
The future - what does it hold for our food? Much the same as it is now, or are we preparing for a food revolution? Join us this week as we discover what all the fuss is over purple carrots, find out what goes on in a flavour factory and Dr Rob samples a buffet of edible insects!
Imagine if cows could milk themselves, that you could make plastic out of wheat and farms had virtual fences. Well, imagine no longer, because science is planting the seeds for the farm of the future.
Air! Even though we are constantly surrounded by it, most of us barely give it a second thought, so what is it? How much of it is there and what does it do? Join Dr Rob for a very airy episode of Scope, as we bounce around on some jumping castles, try and find out the speed of smell and buckle down in a wind tunnel.
Carbohydrates, fats, protein, vitamins and minerals - Food! Have you ever wondered how much science goes into making, eating and storing food? Dr Rob has so join him as he puts his tastebuds into overdrive and SCOPES out all the science behind food!
This week on Scope we are crashing and bashing our way through a rather destructive episode... all in the name of science! Join us as we get some air in a monster truck, experiment with some water balloons, demolish a building or two and have a smashing time with glass!
Albert Einstein may be the best known name in science but he's not the only famous scientist whose work has shaped life in the 21st century. From radioactive cats, to cranes to parachutes join Dr Rob as he takes a trip through time!
This week, Scope is dedicated to you! Yes, you! We are delving into the world of citizen science, where ground breaking research is coming out of the labs and into the hands of the humble citizen! We follow a group of students testing the quality of the planet's water, jump onto some assisted kangaroo research and join a group of volunteers investigating microbats.
What can make a chicken, a computer and a human sick? A Virus! They aren't "alive" but they can infect us, multiply inside us, and prove a serious challenge for our immune systems. So what are viruses and how do they work? Join Dr Rob to find out!
When you see or hear something gross, and go ewwwww, then wonder why? then this episode of Scope is for you! This week, we visit someone who breeds maggots, we find out how to measure the gasses coming out of cows and even take a tour of a machine that squeezes out excess liquid from raw sewage!
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!
