BUGS AND BEYOND: The Magnificent World of Insects?

It's time for another trip around the solar system on the BIGGER and BETTER Science Weekly! 

This episode of the Fun Kids Science Weekly we continue our bigger and better podcast where we put YOUR questions to our team of experts, have scientists battle it out for which science is the best & learn all about a brand new rare and diverse habitat that's been created in Hertfordshire, England.

Dan starts with the latest science news, where we learn about a genetic mutation that's making Labradors constantly hungry, the discovery of the fossils of a nightmarish sea lizard called Kinjaria Acuta and Josh Kalms from the Hertfordshire and Middlesex Wildlife Trust joins us to talk all about a brand new rare and diverse habitat created in Hilfield Park Reservoir.

Then we delve into your questions where Dan explains how our eyeballs move and we pose Matthew's question on how rainbows are formed to Kirsty McCabe from the Royal Metereological Society (RMETS)

Dangerous Dan continues and we learn all about the Chinese Red-Headed Centipede, better known as Scolopendra Mutilans, and why it's so scary.

The Battle of the Sciences continues where Dan chats to Professor Chris Terrell Nield from Nottingham Trent University all about why Entomology (Insect Studies) and specifically beetles is the best! Then we pay a visit to Marina Ventura as she gets up close with biology and today she’s checking out ants and how they work together
