Material scientist Zoe Laughlin has been obsessed with the material world all her life. From her workshop in the heart of London, Zoe explains the science behind new materials that will change six key aspects of our lives. Innovation in healthcare, construction, fashion, transport, defence and communication are driving society forward. Zoe takes us on a journey like no other, meeting the scientists and entrepreneurs who want to use fungus to grow the homes of the future and create new digital storage from the most common material on the surface of our planet, sand.
