Whizzing along in an air tight tube faster than a plane may sound like something from science fiction! But as David Purser from RMIT explains, he's designed a pod which could see this futuristic transportation soon become science fact.
Join junior scientists Indigo and Siobhan as they race balloons using thrust.
When it comes to professional running, the right shoe can make all the difference. Meet Christopher Bishop from the University of South Australia who is using 3D modelling to help design the sneakers of the future.
Race car drivers know how to turn up the speed! But in doing so, they also turn up the heat! Meet Justin Holland from the University of Queensland as he explains how heat and hydration affects those who have a need for speed.
As you can imagine, an hour of repetitive breathing exercises every single day can become a tedious ordeal. But unfortunately, that's the fate that awaits the countless children living with cystic fibrosis. Elliot Smith from the University of Queensland has developed a device that turns these dreary breathing exercises into a fun video game
Your skeletal system is one of the most important parts of your body. And Paul Anderson and Jackson Ryan from the University of South Australia, are researching new ways to keep your bones in tiptop shape!
Houses come in all shapes and sizes; but this house is rather special. As Tony O'Connell from TS Constructions explains this house is one of the most energy efficient in Australia.
If you locked a plant away in a jar, you'd expect it to perish rather quickly. However, as DIY scientist Charlotte discovers, in a closed terrarium plants can recycle their old water almost indefinitely
While submarines seem a little cramped and operate under the ocean (not the most appealing getaway spot), they can actually be really helpful for the country's Navy. Find out about the plan to add more submarines to the fleet and why some feel they are such an important asset.
Climb aboard the Solar Impulse II and catch a glimpse of how planes may come to operate in the future. Throughout history, innovations in flight have taken a few tries but the Solar Impulse II is able to harness solar power in a way that could eventually change the fact of the entire airline industry.
Children visit a place that builds and sells cubby houses, then design and build their own cubby house models.
A lesson on what types of jobs an architect does and a look at architecture plans.
Peter shows how he builds cubby houses for children to play in. He also shows the tools he uses to build them.
The same basic rule applies to building a cubby as building a house - measure it three times, build it once. This program explores the use of measurement when designing something, and touches briefly on the concept of building to a scale. We visit an architect's office and see the role of computers in modern building design.
Children get to choose three ingredients to make their own pizzas, then find out if they made good choices after they're baked.
A look at the various tools used to prepare and cook food.
How do you design a meal that meets certain criteria? This program looks at the role recipes, ingredients, utensils and culinary flair all play when it comes to preparing food. We follow the methodical steps taken to make a chocolate cake and demonstrate the correct use of cooking utensils.
Behind The News meets students testing submersible vehicles, or Sea Perches, they've built as part of a Science Technology Engineering Maths Social Enterprise (STEMSEL) competition.
