From the BBC websites (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00kr8sz and http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice/proginfo/tv/2009/wk20/mon.shtml#mon_nina)
Nina is back with more scientific investigations for children. She is ready to get started on a journey of discovery in her new workshop. With the help of her trusty neurons, which represent the senses (taste, touch, sight, sound and smell), Nina looks at inventions which are used in and around the home.
Each day, children join Nina in her workshop and, together, they look at items which people rely on. Nina asks where they come from, how are they made, why a bed is bouncy, how a flask works and how a vacuum cleaner sucks up dust.
As various objects are discovered, examined and taken apart, Nina and her crew get to see how they function and what makes them work, and even have a go at inventing. The neurons, as always, are called on to help out, and Nina decides which is the best one for the job.
To demonstrate how the same technology in household objects can be used on a big scale, Nina visits lots of exciting locations, including a submarine base, an observatory and the London Eye.
Binoculars are a very useful invention, but how do they work? Daniel, Kevin and Mansi are asking: How do binoculars make far away things look closer?
In Nina's workshop we see binoculars that have been taken apart before Nina and the Inventors head off to see something exciting that uses the same science. In this episode we learn all about lenses and prisms and find out how to make an upside down telescope.
