Material world



The Royal Society, London, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AG


Are these new materials what the future is made of?

Join us in the garden to get a glimpse of the fabrics, plastics and substances that the future will be made of. Meet the scientists developing bio-receptive concrete to give us greener cities, electricity-generating clothes that recharge your phone in your pocket or fixing our ageing body with 3D-printed bones and joints.
