1:15 An app to help identify native trees

There's a new app for tree-lovers out there, a pocket guide to all the native trees in your neighbourhood. 

Using the leaves, bark, or fruit, the nztrees app can tell you what the tree is, what it's Maori and Latin names are and even if it's poisonous. 

To tell us more about how and why this tech was developed is the Head of AUT's School of Science, Professor Len Gillman.

1:25 Encouraging children to pursue their dreams

Children often think up wild ideas, have vivid imaginations and big plans for the future, so how do we bolster that in a realistic way without crushing their dreams? 

After listening to excited high school students talking about their love of space a few weeks ago, Professor Richard Easther, from the University of Auckland, realised many had been told to try something else by well-meaning adults.

So he wrote a blog on how we can encourage ambitious kids, and he's here to walk us through it.

1:35 Paying to recycle non-recyclables

Earlier this year China decided to stop taking any more foreign waste. That's caused quite a big issue around the globe, as it was where countries sent all their recycling.

In New Zealand there are now stockpiles of waste with nowhere to go, millions of kilograms of recycling waiting for new buyers. 

But some councils are still paying for their waste to pile up and Kawerau Mayor Malcolm Campbell wants that to stop.
