Join Lee for an aquatic episode of SCOPE were she dives deep into this abundant compound - water! We use satellite technology to track a turtle, we learn how coral can affect the weather and we check up on the Moreton Bay dugong population.
Oceans can be calm, wild and even move the earth we live on! It's called erosion and Dr Javier Leon from the University of the Sunshine Coast is using UAV technology to try and alleviate the damage it causes to our coastlines!
Many animals return to the wild after recovering in Melbourne Aquarium but how do you keep a track of their progress once they've been released? Well, as Brianna Lang explains, the latest in satellite tracking technology can tell us a lot about how these animals doing out in the wild.
Professor Zoran Ristovski from Queensland University of Technology has found that ocean warming through climate change doesn't just affect marine life it can also have a significant impact on what happens in the atmosphere!

The Capital of Science:
London, Tokyo, Paris; these are some of the capitals of the world! But where exactly is the capital of science?

Deep Space Communication Complex:
Welcome to the largest radar dish in the southern hemisphere! Dr Rob catches up with Dr Nagle from the Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex as he explains how this incredible machine communicates with the stars.
Dishing up Science:
This solar panel is a little different to those you might find on top of some suburban homes. Meet Dr John Pye from the Australian National University who has developed one of the largest parabolic solar dishes in the world!
Sowing our Seeds:
Banks are often used to keep money safe. But Adam Burgess from the National Arboretum in Canberra works to keep, not money, but Australia's unique flora safe for future generations.
Igniting Fire Science:
Dr Rob heads out to the CSIRO's HQ to catch up with Fire Scientist Andrew Sullivan and learn all about how their amazing 'pyrotron' device is helping predict bushfires!
So join Dr Rob for a brand new episode of SCOPE; where the ordinary becomes extraordinary
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!
Most lizards live solitary lives. But as Associate Professor Mike Gardener explains gidgee skinks prefer the company of others.
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.
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.
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!
Lola simply does not have time to play today; she is far too extremely busy organising her office full of mermaids, running her own cafe, dentist and library. She's far too busy to play with Charlie, or Lotta, or even her imaginary friend Soren Lorensen. So she could not possibly find the time to play Charlie's new card game, Flip Flop. However, when Marv comes round to play cards, Lola is not sure that being extremely busy all the time is quite such a good idea.
Brandon discovers a bee and asks Maggie and Brewster: Why do bees make a buzzing sound when they fly? They head to the beehive where they meet the queen bee who explains that the sound is from her wings flapping really fast.

Poppy and Cooper say goodbye to their beloved friend, but Poppy becomes upset and unfairly takes it out on Cooper. In the end, Poppy learns that having your friends around when you are sad will help make you feel better.
Brewster, Maggie and the twins find a toy dinosaur. They wonder: Why don't we see real dinosaurs? Brewster takes them to meet Dino-Biggles, who describes how long ago the weather changed, making dinosaurs extinct.
Dressing up is one of Lola's absolutely favourite things to do. Now she has this fabulous new alligator costume, she is never going to take it off, not ever. Snap, snap, snap! To Charlie's embarrassment, Lola wears her alligator costume everywhere, including the supermarket and the park. She even plans to wear it for her school talk, entitled All About Me. Oh no. Whatever can Charlie do to stop her making a fool of herself?
Andy looks at baby animals as they learn how to get around. Wildebeest can learn to stand just minutes after they are born. Adelie Penguin chicks must race to catch a parent for food, caiman need to be dug out of their nest.
Andy Day sees how young animals get a ride. In Madagascar, ring-tailed lemurs get a piggyback from mum. Kangaroos have a special pouch to hold their babies, while tiny poison dart frogs carry their tadpoles up into the trees.
Finding breakfast takes practice. Andy Day presents a young sea otter watching mum cracking shellfish open. Capuchin monkeys must learn how to break into yummy nuts, and an elephant calf learns how to use its trunk.

Charlie and Marv are trying to do their Spanish homework, which sparks an interest in Lola to speak Spanish too. The boys say she is too young to speak Spanish, so Lola decides she wants to go to "Spainland" herself.
Brewster, Maggie and Ginger Squirrel see the sunset on the beach. Ginger wonders: Where does the sun go after dark? So they ask Sunny Sun, who explains that sometimes he goes to the other side of the world.
Charlie wins first prize at school for his fantastic homemade rocket, which he made from 10 yoghurt pots and some extra-wide tin foil. As he puts his rocket safely away on the top shelf, he explains to Lola that the rocket really isn't a toy and she must absolutely promise not to touch it or play with it. Then Lola and her imaginary friend, Soren Lorenson, find that they have to transport an elephant back to the jungle, and Soren persuades Lola that the rocket is a really good idea. But it isn't. Whoops!
Introducing Charlie on clarinet and Marv on keyboards! The boys are presenting a piece all about Outer Space, accompanied with music, in front of the whole school tomorrow in assembly. Lola is desperate to join in. But it takes a lot of time and hard work to learn how to play an instrument. Lola is not deterred. Improvising instruments is much more fun and, what's more, Lola's makeshift band turns out to be just what is needed.
Playing Piggy-in-the-Middle with fuzzy pig in a fuzzy felt jungle is good, but you definitely need two people. Charlie is going out, and Lotta has a cold. So Lola has no one to play with. Then she remembers her imaginary friend, Soren Lorenson - nobody can see him, except for Lola.
