Dr Shane, Dr Jen, Dr Krystal, and Dr Lauren share the week's hottest science! They talk about the biology of trees used to make paper, a new way to produce stem cells, and why zebras have stripes. The team talk to Rob Newton, principal of The University High School, about their science & mentoring programs; as well as Kathryn North, Director of the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute, about genetic factors in the way a particular protein is expressed in fast muscle fibres. The final guest is Bethany Hoye from the Centre for Integrative Ecology at Deakin University, whose latest research on the role of migratory animals in ecological communities has just been published in Science.

From finding awe in Hubble images to visiting the doctor, science is everywhere in our lives. Whether we wear a white lab coat or haven't seen a test tube since eighth grade, science affects and changes us. We all have a story about science, and at The Story Collider, we want to hear those stories.
