Welcome to That’s Incredible!  A podcast about the unexpectedly awesome things that are all around us.  

On today's episode, we're looking at the fascinating world of science!

Being curious and noticing things is what scientists do every day. They want to know why the world around us looks and feels the way it does and they’re REALLY curious. They like to look under rocks to see what lives there, they want to learn about what’s living in the lint in your belly button and they want to know what’s going on in outer space.

When a scientist comes home at the end of the day they might have discovered something no-one else has ever known before. How amazing is that!

And today we’re going to meet a scientist whose office is one of the hottest and scariest places in the world, a volcano. 

Ready? Let's go!

ACTION ITEM

Time to put on your lab coat and take what you’ve learned in this episode out into your everyday! 

Have you heard of Citizens Science? It’s where people, just like you, do things to help scientists collect data!  

It might be counting the number of birds in your backyard or going for a walk in the forest and collecting some fungi or finding samples of possum poo and sending it to a lab (you might want to wear gloves for that one). 

The Citizen Science website (https://citizenscience.org.au/) lists hundreds of science projects you could be a part of. 

Find an experiment you're interested in and send us a photo of you being a citizen scientist at podca[email protected]
