Kind Classrooms 2017 Please submit your videos by Wednesday the 29th of March. What kind act is your class doing for this year's BTN Kind Classrooms campaign? 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. What is 18C? One number and one letter had many of Australia’s politicians talking this week. 18C is a section of law that talks about racial discrimination. Some politicians say it should be changed to allow people to speak more freely. Others say that would be dangerous. We explain more about what discrimination is and how this law might change things.

Paradise Papers Last week, millions of leaked documents, dubbed 'the Paradise Papers', were released by news outlets around the world. Among other things, they detail the processes that some people and companies use to move their money in an effort to pay much less tax. Nike was one of the companies contained in the release. So next week, we'll reveal exactly how much money from each pair of their shoes you buy in Australia stays here as tax. Ozone Improvement NASA has revealed some good environment news! It says the ozone hole over Antarctica is the smallest it's been for three decades. That's a pretty big deal, because in the 90s, things were looking really bad.

Awkwardly, we'll do just that next week. Indigenous Seasons We all know the traditional European seasons; summer, autumn, winter and spring. But did you know Australia's Indigenous cultures had different seasons that better fit local weather conditions, plants and animals? Next week, we'll join a class as they learn more about these seasons and how they vary across the continent. Teaching resources included Learning Areas - Geography / Knowledge and Understanding: The custodial responsibility Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples have for Country/Place, and how this influences views about sustainability (Year 4) Science / Science Understanding / Earth and space sciences: Predictable phenomena on Earth, including seasons and eclipses, are caused by the relative positions of the sun, Earth and the moon (Year 7) Gaelic Covers Finally we'll travel to Ireland, where some kids are using famous songs to keep their culture alive.

There's no place quite like it! On this episode of SCOPE, we take an in-depth look at the planet we call home; Earth! We learn about our planet's history with some inquisitive geology, we get a crash course in meteorology and we solve mysteries with forensic soil analysis. Geology When you go for a walk you may think 'Oh there just rocks'. But are they? Rocks may not seem like the most interesting subjects to study, but as Catherine Wheller from Melbourne University explains, the stuff under our feet can tell us a lot about how our planet has changed over billions of years. Volcanos 101 Lee heads over to the University of Queensland to catch up with Volcanologist Isabelle Jones and get the low-down on these fiery geological phenomena. Meteorology Weather affects every aspect of our lives; from what we wear, to where we go, to what we eat! Join Andrea Peace from the Bureau of Meteorology as she gives us a crash course in weather 101! DIY Science - Anemometer How do you measure wind speed? With an anemometer of course! Join junior scientist Charlotte as she makes her very own, with some paper cups, clay, and a little scientific know-how! Seismograph Earthquakes can be some of the most destructive and unpredictable events in nature! So how do we record such erratic phenomena? With a seismograph of course! We catch up with Adam Pascale from the Seismology Research Centre as he explains how these amazing machines work! Forensic Soil When it comes to a crime scene, sometimes the tiniest piece of evidence, like soil from a shoe, can crack the case! Join forensic soil analyst Prof Rob Fitzpatrick from the CSIRO as he explains how by studying soil, he can get the dirt on who, what and has been at a crime scene. All that and more on a very down to earth episode of SCOPE!
