Summary This episode of Scope is brought to you by the colour... GREEN! From green tree frogs, to green gems, green lasers and night vision technology; everywhere you look in the episode you will go green with envy! GREEN TREE FROGSIt may be fairly obvious why they are called Green Tree Frogs but there is probably a lot you don't know about these amphibians. Meagan Thomas from Melbourne Zoo gives us all the facts on these creatures and lets us know exactly why they are green.EXPERIMENT: SNOTIt's something that our bodies wouldn't function correctly without, it's green and it's pretty gross. It's snot! Junior Scientists Emily and Robert show us how to make some fake snot with some interesting results. TURF FARMEver wonder where the perfect grass on racetracks, sporting grounds and golf courses comes from? Well it is grown on a Turf Farm. Bruce Stephens from Anco Turf takes us through the steps of farming turf. GREEN NIGHT VISIONNight vision goggles look like they belong in a spy movie, but they are actually a very useful technology for police to see at night. Dan Willetts from the South Australia Police shows us how night vision works and why it means you are seeing green. GREEN GEMSGems come in many colours but today Scott Langford from Langford Gems is going to show us some of the gorgeous green gems he works with everyday and how they get their colour. GREEN LASERSWhile lasers can come in many colours the receptors in our eyes pick up the green wave lengths better than other wavelengths. Robert Sang and Dave Kielpinski from Griffith University show us one of the most powerful and high tech lasers in the country. So join Dr Rob as he proves once again that ordinary becomes extraordinary, under the SCOPE
