This program applies a variety of scientific viewpoints to the discovery of fascinating things around us which are otherwise easy to miss, helping children ask the right questions, discover new ones, and see and explore the world in slightly different ways.

1. Try Making It / 作ってみる

We make an ant out of clay and wire. Could you build an ant without looking at a picture?

2. Try Looking Inside / 中を見てみる

What’s a strawberry like inside? We ask people on the street, then open one up to see.

3. Make a Hypothesis / 仮説を立ててみる

Two boxes containing bottles of water weigh the same. Place an empty box under one. Which side is heavier now?

4. Try Drawing It / 描いてみる

Can you draw a zebra’s stripes from memory? The stripes are probably more complex than you think!

5. Try Comparing / 比べてみる

We look closely at a range of different pinecones to make all sorts of unexpected discoveries.
