Today, Dr Rob examines Biodiversity and explains what it is. With some of Australia's top experts we look at how Marine biodiversity can be measured, how feral animals can reduce biodiversity and even how something as damaging as a fire can promote it!
Experiments are a really important part of any science. They can test theories, prove a point or just be a great demonstration of a scientific principle. So join Dr Rob and his team of young scientists as they SCOPE out all the science behind experiments.
This Scope episode is all about pressure - the amount of force per unit area. Dr Rob explains how pressure works, how it is measured and various experts in their fields show us how pressure applies to everything from music to hydraulics.
Friction is one of the most important forces affecting the world we live in.
