NORTH KOREA TESTS:
Concerns are growing about the threat posed by North Korea, after the rogue nation conducted its biggest nuclear weapons test yet.

We take a closer look at this development and find out why some of the world's most powerful countries are now calling for action.

TEACHING RESOURCES INCLUDED:

The geographical diversity of the Asia region and the location of its major countries in relation to Australia Year 6

Differences in the economic, demographic and social characteristics of countries across the world Year 6

UNIFORM PURCHASE:
The Australian Defence Force has announced that its new dress uniforms will be made in China.

The decision has angered some people, who say the uniforms should be made here in Australia.

We take a look at the pros and cons of buying locally.

HAY FEVER SEASON:
Across much of Australia it's been an unusually wet winter.

And experts say that will likely lead to the worst spring hay fever season seen for many years.

We find out what that'll mean for those who suffer from it.

CEREBRAL PALSY DAY:
During the upcoming school holidays World Cerebral Palsy Day will be held.

It's a disorder that affects many different kids in many different ways.

Max is one of them.

But with some help from his very supportive class, Max is finding new ways of communicating with the world.

SEA PERCH COMPETITION:
Last year, we brought you the story of a group of Aussie kids who had created and started racing underwater robots called Sea Perches.

In the year since, they've refined their designs and travelled to America to pit themselves against the world's best.

Flynn and Heath took BtN along for the ride - tune in next week to find out how they went.
