‘Whatever!’ The Science of Teens

5 x 30′ Science Documentary

‘Whatever! The Science of Teens’ is a five-part series which explores the science that drives adolescent behaviour. The science is explained by Australia’s leading scientific and behavioural experts who comment along the way and conduct some unusual, but always enlightening experiments.

In each episode we meet actual Australian teenagers. By dissecting their lives we attempt to illustrate the biology behind the bad behaviour. And it’s NOT simply a matter of raging hormones. Our teens also act as ‘lab rats’ for regular experiments that bring the science to life.

Presenter Steve Cannane documents the teens in their natural habitats – the beach, the mall, the skate park or at wild parties. Steve also takes part in many of our ‘left of field’ experiments by acting as the adult comparison.
