In this new series, Dr Lucy Rogers, Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering and Professor of Creativity and Communication, is on a mission to discover how everyday technology can be applied in exceptional ways to produce an engineering edge. She travels the globe – virtually – to track down how inventors, engineers, and astronauts who use technology to help keep bees buzzing, provide humans a sixth sense, and change the future of space exploration. Over 12 episodes, Dr Lucy interviews guest experts, including entomology specialist Professor Christina Grozinger, award-winning technologist Jude Pullen, and European Space Agency astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti. She also recreates some of the technology in her home lab.
