Cutting edge, ground breaking, up and coming, whatever you want to call it, when it comes to the latest and greatest in scientific advancements, this episode of SCOPE has it covered! We check out some blinking bike lights, we meet some dancing robots and we learn all about how we all learn! BIKE BLINKERS: While riding a bike, taking your hands off the handlebar to indicate turning can be dangerous. Luckily for us, junior inventor and BHP Billiton award winner Jory has developed a solution to this common problem. NANOTECHNOLOGY: When we want to learn more about cells we usually peer at them through a microscope. But what if we wanted to look at them while they were still in the body? Join Dr Malcolm Purdey from the University of Adelaide as he explains how nanotechnology could help us tackle this problem head on! DIY SCIENCE - BALLOON REACTIONS: Junior scientists Bella and Jade from Cavendish Road State High School use chemical reactions to find new ways to blow up balloons. MEET MY ROBOT - ACCROBOT: Some robots build, other robots race but these robots dance! Meet Jonathan Roberts and Georgina Hine from Queensland University of Technology as they explain the ins and outs of their performing robots! SCIENTIFIC LEARNING: In most schools, it's the students that learn from the teachers. But for Professor Robyn Gilles from the University of Queensland, she's the one learning from the students! UNBOILING AN EGG: Unboiling an egg might sound impossible, but Professor Colin Raston from Flinders University shows us a machine that can do exactly that. So join Lee as she discovers the latest that science has to offer on SCOPE; where the ordinary becomes extraordinary!

Agriculture; it's something we humans have been doing for thousands of years. Join Lee on SCOPE, as we explore the ins and outs of this ancient science. We discover a new way to grow strawberries, we visit an agricultural high school and we ascend into the clouds with a drone that monitors wheat! Strawberry Farm Strawberries are one of the most popular fruits on the planet! And as Gavin Scurr from Pinata Farms explains, he may have found a brand new way to grow this delicious fruit. Barra Farm Join Barb Cooper and her class from Parndana School as they take advantage a unique aquiculture facility to grow barramundi and herbs! Ag School Reading, writing and ... beekeeping?! This isn't your average class! Meet Jessica and Lachlan from Ferny Grove State High School as they walk you through the ins and outs of their agriculture education! DIY - Cabbage PH Indicator Cabbage may not be everyone's favourite food. But as junior scientists Ellie and Marshal demonstrate, this versatile vegetable can be used to measure the acidity of liquids! Colour Coded Wheat Growing wheat in salty soil is almost impossible! For that reason, Ramesh Raja Searan from University of Adelaide has taken to the skies to evaluate which varieties do best under these harsh conditions. Farmyard Genetics In the wild cattle have horns to protect themselves from predators, but in modern agriculture these outgrowths can endanger both themselves and their handlers. That's why Sarah Buttsworth from the University of Queensland is using DNA testing to help breed hornless cows! All that and more on this week's home-grown episode of SCOPE; where the ordinary becomes extraordinary!

Innovation is the force that drives science forward and on this episode of SCOPE we explore some of the most innovative science in the world today! We check out a harp with no strings, we tick along with the world's most accurate clock and we trek through the Peruvian jungle from the comfort of a VR lab! Laser Harp The harp has been around for more than 5000 years old. Junior Inventor Reuben from Brighton Grammar School thought it was about time to bring this ancient instrument into the 21st Century using laser. Touch DNA Device DNA testing is essential to any crime scene investigation. But traditional collection methods can be inefficient. Luckily, Associate Professor Sandy Walkers' has a revolutionary new forensic tool that could soon change all that. Thermoelectric Battery Junior inventor Jaikob Akinci from Brighton Grammar School showcases his unique way of generating electricity from the heat of a candle! Sapphire Clock Losing a couple of seconds off your wristwatch every month may not be a big deal to you, but when it comes to scientific measurements keeping time is essential to accurate record keeping. That's why Andre Luiten and Martin O'Connor from the University of Adelaide have developed a clock so accurate it only loses a single second every 30 million years! DIY Science - Solar Oven Ovens, microwaves and ... pizza boxes? Junior scientist Hayley Sisson explains how you can use the power of the sun to cook up some of your favourite treats! VR Conservation Join Professor Kerrie Mengersen from Queensland University of Technology as she's takes some of the world's leading conservation scientists out of the lab and into the Amazon with the help of virtual reality!

Last year we saw car washes, snack deliveries and donations to the homeless all planned and carried out by kids. So get thinking, film your work and send it in to BTN - and you might see your good deeds featured on the show. For more details, please head to our website. Power Fix Recently, South Australia has had problems with its power supply, so this week its Premier announced it would attempt to fix these issues with two things - batteries and gas. We take a look at both of these technologies and find out how each one might be able to make an electricity grid more reliable. Queensland Drought Almost 90% of the state of Queensland is currently suffering drought conditions, leading to worries for the people there that rely on rainfall for their livelihoods, like farmers. We meet some of the kids living in these drought areas to find out what sort of problems it's causing for them each and every day.

It is dedicated to raising awareness about epilepsy. So we asked one young Aussie to tell us what living with epilepsy means for him. Earth Hour Torches Some Kind Classrooms inspiration next - a group of kids are working hard to make cheap and enviromentally sustainable torches for families in Africa. They're building the solar-powered lights as part of Earth Hour, an environmental awareness campaign that's marking its tenth anniversary this year. We'll join them to find out how they make these special torches and why they're needed overseas.

Population Debate Populate or Perish has long been a catchcry for Australia.... . but the latest projections show Australia will have a population of 35 million by 2050. It's due to the Generation x baby boom - as well as immigration. Will that be too many people? BTN examines both sides of the immigration debate. Those in favour of a bigger Australia say it's an economic imperative. Others argue that our resources are already stretched - and the rate of growth should be slowed. We look at how and why the immigration boom started after WW2 - and how new arrivals have made their mark in modern Australia. Reef Ship The Chinese coal carrier Shen Neng One has just been refloated after running aground on the Great Barrier Reef. It was stuck there for 10 days, leaking oil. and damaging the coral as it dragged over the reef for one kilmometre. So how could this happen, and how hard will it be to fix the mess? How can we protect the environment while still allowing ships to deliver and pick up cargo? We look at the principal of how shipping lanes are supposed to keep boats moving in a safe and orderly fashion, like cars on roads. Iceland Volcano The Volcanic eruption in Iceland is now causing chaos across Europe. The spread of ash poses serious problems for aircraft so flights have been grounded - stranding thousands of passengers. BTN reports on this issue and how an eruption under ice can cause other threats...such as major flooding from the melting ice. High Clouds We look at an unusual way scientists are investigating climate change. They're studying the temperatures of noctilucent clouds... which are found 100 kilometres above the earth and are the world's highest clouds. From a small Antarctic hut, scientists point a powerful laser beam called a Lidar into the night sky...to measure the heat in clouds that are too high for balloons and too low for satellites. Gudgeon Project The River Murray's Southern Purple Spotted Gudgeon was thought to be extinct - until a small colony was re-discovered in South Australia. BTN looks at an ambitious project to breed-up their numbers, and how a group of kids has been able to help. We were there when these small fry were released back into the river - to hopefully start a Gudgeon comeback.
