It's summer in North Queensland - the time when the tropics heave with energy and runoff from rainforests pumps nutrients into this supercharged marine ecosystem. Large predators such as sailfish come in from all over the Pacific to feed in the waters. The attack then comes from the sky, where a flock of hungry seabirds wait for their opportunity to strike.

Aid agencies have now declared cyclone Pam one of the worst natural disasters to hit the pacific. Seventy percent of the population of Vanuatu has been left homeless by it, and every school there has been badly damaged or destroyed. We meet some of the kids of Vanuatu to find out exactly what happened and what they need now to get back on their feet. There are teaching resources for this story and our story on Bionic Body.

CENSUS STATS: Surveying all 24 million Australians is no easy task. But on August the 9th, that's exactly what will happen. It's called the Census and it's so difficult and expensive that it's only done every five years. But this time around, some people are worried all of that data they collect may not be safe. We find out why they're concerned and what all that information will be used for anyway. OLYMPIC HISTORY: The biggest sporting event on the planet is about to kick off in Rio. But how do the Olympic Games now differ from the first time they were held? We travel back in time to find out. TEACHING RESOURCES INCLUDED Learning Areas: History / Historical Knowledge and Understanding / The Mediterranean world / Greece: Significant beliefs, values and practices of the ancient Greeks, with a particular emphasis on ONE of the following areas: everyday life, warfare, or death and funerary customs Year 7 History / Knowledge and Understanding / The Mediterranean world: Roles of key groups in the ancient Greece, Egypt or Rome, including the influence of law and religion Year 7 The physical features of ancient Greece, Egypt or Rome and how they influenced the civilisation that developed there Year 7 HASS / Inquiry and skills / Questioning: Develop appropriate questions to guide an inquiry about people, events, developments, places, systems and challenges Years 5 & 6 COORDINATE CHANGES: Australia is moving up in the world - literally. Over the past 22 years, the continent has shifted north by approximately 1.5m. It might not sound like a lot, but many new technologies rely on precise measurements to function safely. So now, researchers are trying to make amends. TEACHING RESOURCES INCLUDED Learning Areas: Geography / Knowledge and Understanding: The geographical diversity of the Asia region and the location of its major countries in relation to Australia Year 6 Science Understanding / Earth and space sciences: Sudden geological changes and extreme weather conditions can affect Earth's surface Year 6 Science as a Human Endeavour / Use and influence of science: Scientific knowledge is used to solve problems and inform personal and community decisions Year 6 Science Understanding / Earth and space sciences: The theory of plate tectonics explains global patterns of geological activity and continental movement Year 9 LEFT-HANDED: It's the slight difference that divides us all - are you a lefty or a righty? The 13th of August is International Lefthander's Day. So to celebrate, we thought we'd find out why people prefer different hands and how left-handedness was seen in the past. APP KID: An 11-year old app designer from Queensland recently travelled to the US as the special guest of an international entrepreneurship summit. While there, he got to hear President Barack Obama speak and had the opportunity to show off his games. He also filmed the trip exclusively for BtN. Tune in next week to see how it went.

URANIUM U-TURN We all know how important energy is... so what if I told you that there's an energy supply that's thousands of times more efficient than coal, that doesn't create carbon pollution and that Australia has massive reserves of. Sound pretty good? Well it's a bit more complicated than that. Sarah finds out why Uranium is a controversial element and why new plans to mine and sell it have stirred up debate.

SCHOOL SWIMMING Summer is just around the corner and most of us love cooling off at the beach or in a swimming pool. But a new report's found a lot more young people are drowning each year because they don't know how to swim. One idea that's being talked about is making swimming lessons compulsory in schools. DEVIL ISLAND Not that long ago Tassie devils were a common sight across Tasmania, but a nasty disease wiped out a big chunk of the population. Now conservationists are trying to bring the species back from the brink by introducing them to a part of the state they've never lived before. STONER GOODBYE If you know anything about motorbike racing, then you've probably at least heard of Casey Stoner. He was so young when he started winning races, that he's inspired a whole generation of young riders to follow in his tracks. As he completes his final race, we'll take a look at what he's achieved, and the legacy he'll leave behind.
