EPISODE: 3/014 SCIENCE OF “F”


Fancy a fun-filled, fast-pace science show full of fascinating facts, flashy features and a faint hint of flatulence? Well look no further! This week on Scope we are all about the letter F! Take a closer look at the physics of figure skating, get to the bottom of what fermentation really is, find out why scientists are attaching tiny sensors to the back of fruit flies, and check out the flippers, fins and photos used in a dolphin researcher’s latest project!

Dolphin Fins
Marine biologists have been studying dolphins for many years… and Dr Kate Charlton-Robb from Monash University is one of them! But her technique for studying these amazing creatures is quite unique – she takes photos and identifies each animal using special markings on their fins!

Figure Skating
A double salchow, a cross foot spin, a triple toe... these names might seem unusual, but James and India from Silver Blades Ice Skating Club explain all, as they skate through the science of this precision sport.
