2:10 The School Leaver's Guide - Paul Dennison - Many practical things kids don't learn at school - or at home, in many cases - have been compiled into a book by a Timaru Boys' High School teacher. Concerned about some of the things his students didn't know, Paul Dennison has written a book entitled "A School Leaver's Guide to the Real World." It aims to teach young people how tough it is moving out of home and leaving the security of high school, and how they can help themselves to get by.
2:20 The Exposure Band - Danielle Watt - A couple of New Plymouth teenagers are in the process of patenting an invention believed to be a world first. And they've signed a contract for their product - called an "Exposure Band" - to be sold in the United States and Australia, as well as here in New Zealand. An "Exposure Band" looks like a wrist watch, and monitors the UV rays, changing colour when it's time for the wearer to reapply their sunblock.
One of the young entrepreneurs, 17-year-old Danielle Watt, who talks with Jim Mora.
2:30 Reading - Our adaptation of Rachael King's novel 'The Sound of Butterflies' continues at 2.30 with Sophie Edgar coming to realise more and more about what her husband did when he went into the wilds of Brazil collecting butterflies. And it is changing her attitude towards the man she married.
