Next week on BrainBuzz host Kellyn Morris, resident scientist Clare Van Dorssen, the BrainBuzz Crew and special guests delve into questions about Weather, Adventure Science, Robots, Insects and Transport.
Tune in weekdays at 8.00am on 9Go! and 9Now to see it all unfold.
Episode 6 – Weather
Every day we experience different weather conditions and overall they are quite mild. However, the weather isn’t always that predictable. Some types of weather, like thunderstorms, cyclones and hailstorms, can be extremely powerful and destructive.
Channel Nine’s weather presenter and meteorologist, Garry Youngberry, helps Kellyn and the BrainBuzz Crew find out where wind comes from, what a cyclone is, and how to predict the weather.
Episode 7 – Adventure Science
Have you ever had that superhuman feeling? When you try something adventurous and instantly feel a boost of energy, emotion, and even satisfaction?
Kellyn and the BrainBuzz Crew are introduced to an exciting adventure sport, rock climbing. They’re are joined by a professional rock climbing instructor, Louis Talbot, who demonstrates why rock climbers are so agile and can climb fast.
Episode 8 – Robots
Reviewers, analysts and commentators say that robots will one day take over the world, but there are still so many questions. Will robots ever think for themselves? How do you tell robots what to do? Can robots fly? Kellyn and the BrainBuzz Crew are joined by Professor Johnathan Roberts from the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision and his robot called Baxter to answer these questions.
Episode 9 – Insects
Did you know that more than half of all living things on the planet are insects? Kellyn and the BrainBuzz Crew are joined by bug specialist Lea Fern, from Bug Kidz, who brings along her collection of insects to answer questions such as: Are spiders insects? How does a caterpillar turn into a butterfly? And why are bees so important?
Episode 10 – Transport
We all know that transport gets us from A to B. Join Kellyn and the BrainBuzz Crew as they discover the science behind the different forms of transport and find answers to how a hovercraft works; why we see wires above trams; and why we have public transport.
Tune in to 9GO! and 9Now, weekdays from 8.00am, to hear and see what discoveries unfold.
