IF you want to learn more about sci­ence with host Aznil Nawawi and “sci­en­tist ex­traor­di­naire” Rafi­dah Ab­dul­lah, keep an eye out for the sec­ond sea­son of Clever! on Satur­days (1.30pm) on Astro TVIQ (Chan­nel 610).

The new sea­son which aired last Satur­day, has new episodes, celebrity guests and sci­ence ex­per­i­ments with an en­gag­ing and in­ter­ac­tive for­mat for stu­dents through its 360° ap­proach: on-tv, online and on­ground di­rectly to se­lected schools na­tion­wide.

Join Aznil and Rafi­dah as they chal­lenge two teams (com­pris­ing a celebrity and stu­dent per team) to dis­cover the amaz­ing world of sci­ence through five sci­en­tific top­ics of mind-bog­gling ques­tions and ex­per­i­ments. Celebrity guests in­clude Zizan, Jo­han and Na­bil of Raja Lawak, Jaclyn Vic­tor, Ana Raf­fali, Sarimah Ibrahim, Diana Danielle and Di­die Alias.

In each episode, Rafi­dah also con­ducts dif­fer­ent ex­per­i­ments de­signed to an­swer sci­en­tific rid­dles.

Astro Head Of Ed­u­ca­tion Ravi Gopal hopes the new sea­son will help stu­dents learn and un­der­stand sci­ence bet­ter via the en­ter­tain­ing and en­gag­ing show.

“Clever! brings bet­ter ex­per­i­ments and fun to stim­u­late stu­dents’ minds, to spark rea­son­ing and cre­ativ­ity. It ad­dresses a se­ries of sci­en­tific top­ics and mind-bog­gling ques­tions like can one cook eggs with 50 mo­bile phones? How can we keep worms away from veg­eta­bles? There are even ex­per­i­ments which are safe for kids and the whole fam­ily to try at home,” said Ravi in a press re­lease.

Stu­dents can deepen their un­der­stand­ing via the ded­i­cated Clever! web­site for catch-up episodes, ac­tiv­i­ties and use­ful in­for- ma­tion about sci­ence, and an in­ter­ac­tive chat­box for them to speak with fel­low sci­ence en­thu­si­asts.

Ravi added: “With a 360° ap­proach, we are bring­ing Clever! to stu­dents in ru­ral and re­mote ar­eas.”
