SUPER TRAWLER The second biggest fishing trawler in the world arrived in Australia last week. But with it... came a sea of controversy. The Government has tried to stop the super trawler from dropping its huge nets in Australian waters. But the company behind it says it's doing nothing wrong and has followed all the rules. So why has it become such a controversial issue? COTTON WOOL KIDS No one wants to get hurt... but some reckon the cuts and bruises that kids get from playing outside are actually a really important part of growing up. Right now there are big studies going on to see whether kids' health is suffering because their parents aren't letting them do dangerous stuff. We look at one school that's trying to introduce some risk-taking into the playground. PLASTIC OCEANS 3.5 million pieces of new plastic end up in the world's oceans every day. So how do they get there and what damage are they doing to marine animals? We check out a big scientific study where researchers, with the help of some school kids, are tracking the movement of plastic in the Ocean. WOMBAT WEEDS Last week we brought you the story of some kids who were combing the bush trying to get rid of weeds which can be dangerous for native animals. This story is proof of that. We see how some wombats are suffering because of their battle with a particular type of weed. SHOW BUSINESS We meet the families that travel around Australia putting on shows and carnivals. It can be a full-time commitment and because of that most of the kids attend a special school which goes on tour with them.

NEW MIGRANTS We've been hearing a lot from politicians about the best way to deal with asylum seekers. But amongst all the arguing about policy, it's easy to forget that we're actually talking about real people. BtN follows a family of new arrivals as they try to settle in Australia. KIDS' RIGHTS You've probably heard the phrase "human rights" before. It means that everyone has the right to a basic level of treatment. But did you know that there's also a set of Children's Rights? So what are they? RUGBY TV RIGHTS If you're a Rugby Union fan, you'll know that the World Cup final is this Saturday. But if you've been tuning in to BTN you might have noticed that we haven't said much about it. That might seem pretty strange, after all, the World Cup is big news. But as Sarah found out, with every big sporting event comes a big set of rules about who can use the pictures. SOLAR CARS An amazing car race across Australia is just winding up. What made it so amazing was that none of the cars ran on petrol. Instead, they were all powered by the sun! So if people are able to make cars to travel great distances that don't need petrol, why don't we see them on our roads? CLASSROOM DRAMA It's no secret that some school subjects are more popular than others. One school is trying to take advantage of a class's enthusiasm for drama... and apply it to other lessons.

9/11: TEN YEARS ON This week will see the 10th anniversary of one of the most significant terrorist attacks in living memory. On September 11th terrorists hijacked aeroplanes and deliberately crashed them into buildings in America. Nearly three thousand people died. As Nathan finds out, the effects of the attack have been long-lasting. DANGEROUS DOGS There's about to be a big crackdown on dangerous dogs in Victoria, where a four year old girl died after being attacked by a pitbull cross earlier this month. BtN looks at whether people should people be allowed to keep dangerous breeds of dogs. And examines some new laws that are being brought in to tackle the problem. ON THE SCENE Can you always believe what you see on the news? A few journalists from channel 9 lost their jobs last month when they pretended to do a news report from a helicopter... even though they never actually left the ground. We look at why news programs think it's so important to show their reporters on the scene of the story. Whether it's standing in front of a court building, at a crime scene or in a storm... location it seems... is important. OLD COMPUTERS When the boss of the tech giant Apple announced he was going to step down... it was such big news that even the company's shares took a hit. Steve Jobs has been one of the leaders in the tech world since the early days of the home computer. So, we thought we'd take a journey back to a time to when your parents thought their computer was so cool... but in truth... it was actually really lame. SPRINT SCIENCE Surely, to be a top sprinter all you need to do is be able to run really, really fast. Well, there's a actually a lot more to sprinting than that. Tash examines some of the science and techniques behind sprinting... all designed to shave a fraction off your finishing time.

Animals and Science Collide: Join Dr Rob for a walk on the wild side as animals and science collide on this brand new episode of SCOPE! We explore the hunting habits of penguins, we predict pregnancies with roo poo and we put chickens to the test. Penguin Pack: You might think of penguins as being cute and cuddly but they’re also very effective hunters! Meet Grace Sutton from Deakin University who has spent the past 2 years studying the foraging behaviours of the world’s smallest penguin species. Poo Predictor: Gross as it may be, animal poo can tell you a lot about a species. As Dr Tamara Keeley from the University of Queensland explains, from eating habits to pregnancy, poo can be a great way of finding out how healthy an animal is. DIY Science – Whale Blubber: Whales spend a lot of their time in the icy waters of the arctic; so how do they keep warm? Junior Scientist Jacques recreates whale blubber to try and answer this very question! Tiger Cubs: Tigers are the biggest of the big cats, not that you’d know that from this story. Tiger Keeper Patrick Martin-Vegue from Dreamworld introduces us to some of the smaller members of the family- the new tiger cubs. Chicken Clicker: Susan Hazel from the University of Adelaide has been training chickens to tell the difference between red and green. It may sound odd but her research is teaching us a lot about animal behaviours and the science of learning.

But as Steven Salisbury from the University of Queensland explains, 65 million years ago it was a thriving eco-system; and he has the fossils to prove it! String Science The harp is made up of 47 strings, is more than 5000 years old, and as Michael Johnson from Lyrebird Music explains, also choc-full of interesting science! DIY Science - Modelling Dough Join junior scientist Thi as he creates some modelling dough with flour, water and a little chemical know-how. Electric Bus Buses are an essential part to any cities public transport system and a great way to reduce carbon emission. And as David Slama from Adelaide City Council explains, one very special bus is helping reduce emission even more; by running entirely on electricity!

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!

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!

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! All that and more on a truly innovative episode of SCOPE: where the ordinary becomes extraordinary!

Kind Classrooms 2017 Continues 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. 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. TEACHING RESOURCES INCLUDED Learning Areas: Science / Science Understanding / Earth and space sciences: Sudden geological changes and extreme weather events can affect Earth's surface Year 6 Geography / Water in the world: Causes, impacts and responses to an atmospheric or hydrological hazard Year 7 The quantity and variability of Australia's water resources compared with other continents Year 7 Epilepsy Sunday the 26th of March is Purple 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. TEACHING RESOURCES INCLUDED Learning Areas: Science/ Science as a Human Endeavour / Use and influence of science: Scientific knowledge is used to solve problems and inform personal and community decisions Years 5 and 6 Science / Science as a Human Endeavour / Nature and development of science: Scientific knowledge has changed peoples' understanding of the world and is refined as new evidence becomes available Year 7 Science / Science Understanding / Earth and space sciences: Some of Earth's resources are renewable, but others are non-renewable Year 7 Geography / Knowledge and Understanding: The use and management of natural resources and waste, and the different views on how to do this sustainably Year 4 VR Classroom We've all heard of the school of the air, but what about the school of virtual reality? Aurora College in NSW claims to be the first VR school in the state, with students meeting together digitally for lessons held by teachers all over the world. We find out what going to this special kind of school is really like.

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.
