Could we LOSE FOOD due to CLIMATE CHANGE???

It's time for another trip around the solar system!Ā 

This episode of the Fun Kids Science Weekly explores the impact of climate change on food, brilliant inventions like LEDs, and a look at a deadly creature.

Dan starts with the latest science news, discussing a gigantic ring-shaped structure in space, the discovery of an ancient city in the Amazon, and the world's oldest bit of skin from an amniote.

Then, food scientist Maryn McKenna discusses how climate change could alter our diets, with crops potentially moving to different growing areas. Techno Mom explains how LEDs work and why they're energy-efficient. In "Dangerous Dan" we find out about the rough-skinned newt, a creature with a toxin in its skin. Finally, Benny and Mal, two microbes, debate the ethical dilemmas of replacing body parts and the concept of living forever.

What do we learn about?
