Lines from Edgar Allen Poe's 1849 poem A Dream Within a Dream, “what we see and what we seem are but a dream; a dream within a dream” is whispered by the narrator. The introduction of Allen Poe, famous for his mysterious and often macabre stories, situates the enigmatic, dream-like qualities that punctuate the film and suggests the incompatibility of Victorian ideals and the Australian landscape.
Ben Milbourne and Dr Joel Gilmore make up a hot pickle preserve using vinegar and vegetables, demonstrating a delicious way to extend the longevity of perishable food items and cut down on food waste. Hot pickle preserves, rather than cold pickle preserves, are a handy way of breaking down cell walls and lightly softening the vegetables.
John Keating reveals a very different teaching style in the boys' first English class for the semester, where he encourages his students to "seize the day". This clip captures a memorable scene from the movie that could be used as a conversation starter about pursuing life’s opportunities.
Junior scientists Jasmine and Holly explain how having two eyes helps with depth perception, and demonstrate an experiment a test to see if covering one eye makes any difference to a person's ability to direct a friend to drop a marble into a cup.
The Queensland Rocketry Society's Ari Piirainen demonstrates how hobbyists build and launch rockets, explaining how to get started with a kit, what the different motor sizes are, and how launches are conducted safely.
Junior scientist Braeden shows us how to build an anemometer and begin collecting data about the speed and behaviour of wind moving around your house or school. Did you know anemometer design has stayed relatively the same since its development in the 15th century? To build this weather instrument yourself, you will need four small paper cups, cardboard, scissors, a ruler, a stapler, a thump tack, some modelling clay, a permanent marker and a pencil with an eraser.
Junior scientist India teaches us about different Australian animal noises. From territorial koalas and chatty dingo packs to the lyrebird's perfect echoes, India demonstrates how to identify each sound and what they're likely to mean.
Junior scientists Josephine and Philippa demonstrate how to test your friends' fungiform papillae concentration and determine who amongst them is a super taster. Fungiform papillae are mushroom-like bumps capped with tastebuds on the tip and sides of our tongues and help distinguish the five tastes: sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami (savoury). To start testing, you'll need blue food dye, a cotton tip, a bowl, a card with a 7mm hole punched out and a pad for recording results.
Join junior scientist Elizabeth as she demonstrates how to make a colour-mixing wheel. To make your own spinning colour illusion, collect some cardboard, scissors, glue, string, red, blue and yellow markers and a pen or a computer.
Junior scientist Hayley demonstrates how to make a lava lamp using a clear drinking glass, vegetable oil, salt, water and some food colouring. Because salt is denser than both the oil and water, dropping it into the cup makes the floating oil wrapped around the particles as they make their way to the bottom of the glass. Once at the bottom the salt begins to dissolve, allowing the oil to move back to the top of the water, creating a fun lava-like reaction.
Junior scientist Lilli demonstrates how to grow your gummy lollies using osmosis. To do this experiment at home, you'll need some gummy lollies, three bowls, water, sugar, a pen, a rule and some paper for recording your results. Did you know that osmosis is the movement of solvent molecules through a semi-permeable membrane? In this case, osmosis is occurring when the water moves into the body of our gummy lollies.
Scope's resident scientist, Julia, teaches us about the periscope, how it works and how to make one from readily available materials. To build this stealth observation device, you'll need two milk cartons, two small mirrors, a marker, a rule, sticky tape and scissors.
Junior scientist Will demonstrates how to create a homely habitat for your decapod friends. You will need crushed shells, a clean branch, salt crystals, two dishes, a heat pad, a thermometer, an aquarium with a lid and extra shells for the future. Hermit crabs have soft, asymmetrical abdomens that they conceal in scavenged shells, upgrading as they grow. Hermit crabs are also known to use plastic lids or other debris in lieu of mollusc shells, due to increased coastal litter.
Junior scientists Lucy and Brittany use some cool science to make a delicious snack in no time. To follow along, you'll need milk, vanilla extract, sugar, small and large zip lock bags, rock salt and four cups of ice. Mixing salt and ice creates a frigorific mixture that causes the ice to melt and cool again because of saltwater's lower freezing point. This process of repeated cooling continues until the mixture finds temperature equilibrium, or until the ice-cream is ready!
Meet Anzac, the great-great grandson of a World War I soldier at Gallipoli, as he tells us about the inspiring man he's named after. The elder Anzac actually lied in order to be able to serve in World War I and he was eventually killed fighting for Australia. Now, we celebrate Anzac Day to remember those who died serving their country.
Learn about the relationship between art and identity from Larrakia (Darwin) elder June Mills. From screen-printing to traditional techniques and materials, June Mills explains how every nation has its own stories, designs, and ways of sharing knowledge.
Professor Melissa Fitzgerald explains how amino acids interact in a protein, what a "folded protein" means and what happens to the three dimensional structure of the protein when it's tenderised or cooked.
Professor Melissa Fitzgerald explains how our bodies breakdown carbohydrates into glucose molecules, the storage of these glucose molecules in the polymer glycogen, and how we reprocess this glycogen as energy when we are sleeping or exercising. While they're at it, Melissa and the Food Lab team discuss how much energy an oyster really contains.
Mister Maker takes a trip back in time to learn about Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo, known for his imaginative portraiture that used different fish, meats, fruits and vegetables to represent the subject.
Queen Elizabeth II recently set a record as the longest serving queen and quite a lot has happened through many years of service. Find out how her power and position has changed through the years and the ongoing debate about whether or not she should still be Australia's queen.
The next day Robyn arrives at the Warakurna community. Rick takes photos of Robyn and the community, for which she scolds him. That afternoon, Robyn is invited to share in a traditional dance with the other women. During the night Rick sneaks out to photograph a ceremony, Robyn again reprimands him for his lack of respect for Indigenous customs. The next day, Robyn resists the idea of a detour and searches for an elder to guide her through a sacred part of the Gibson Desert, Western Australia.
April 9th, 1977, Robyn prepares to leave, saying goodbye to her family and friends. Not far into the journey, Rick Smolan appears to photograph Robyn, much to her annoyance. After 29 days, Robyn arrives in Uluru (previously Ayers Rock). At Ayers Rock, Robyn experiences the hypocrisy of tourism and the Australian government's handling of Sacred Sites first hand.
