Sporty Science: Going, going, gone! Dr Rob knocks it out of the park this week with an episode of SCOPE all about the science of sports! We learn how to track our athletes every move, we hang ten with some young surfers and their latest tech and we find out what it takes to fuel a professional athlete! Science of Surfing: Join Dr Anthony Ellis from BIOLABS as he ditches the lab and test tubes for the beach and a surfboard. Hang ten, as we check out some of the latest technology that's helping bring this sport into the 21st century. How to Feed a Lion: When you're feeding a lion you have to make sure it gets just the right amount and type of food to keep it happy and healthy. Except, the lions Louise Cato feeds aren't feline predators ... they're AFL players! DIY - Hula Hoop: Hula Hooping can be a lot of fun, and the science behind it is just as entertaining. Join junior scientist Hayley as she demonstrates how you can make your very own hula hoop at home! Tracking Tech: Most modern day tracking equipment relies on GPS technology. But what do you do when you're out of range? Well, you turn to Jonathan Shepherd from Griffith University and his SABEL sense tracking device. Chronic Wounds: Some wounds can take months or even years to fully recover. But thanks to Michael Samuel from the University of South Australia we might soon have the tools to speed up this process.

Join Lee for a brand new episode of Scope as she checks out some amazing science. We find out about the gidgee skink and why they live in family groups, we meet a scientist who found inspiration for a new fingerprinting technique after his house was broken in to, and we check out the sounds of the ocean. High Pressure Juice Nothing beats chomping into some fresh produce! But getting food that's truly fresh can be tricky. Luckily Sandra Olivier and Kai Knoerzer from the CSIRO have developed a new way to keep your food fresh for longer! Lizard Behaviour Most lizards live solitary lives. But as Associate Professor Mike Gardener explains gidgee skinks prefer the company of others. Glowing Fingerprints Dusting for fingerprints is an essential part to any crime scene investigation. But those fingerprints can sometimes be hard to find. Not to fear; Dr Kang Liang and Dr JJ Richardson have developed a new technique that makes fingerprints glow! DIY - Paper Mache Join junior scientist Michelle as she explores the science behind papier mache while creating her very own pinata. Changing Oceans Oceans aren't as silent as you might think, they're filled with a whole host of marine murmurings! But that might soon change. Associate Professor Ivan Nagelkerken and Professor Sean Connell from the University of Adelaide are studying what affect pollution has on these nautical noises. Whale Forensics Whales and dolphins are some of the most interesting creatures on the planet. But when they die, they often wash up along our coast. And when that happens, Catherine Kemper from the South Australian Museum gets the call! All that and more in another science-rific episode of SCOPE where the ordinary becomes extraordinary!
