To make our everyday devices faster and smarter, we need to engineer increasingly advanced materials, especially semiconductors, for use in computer chips and sensors.

This activity will take you on a journey to explore the way we engineer these materials, including controlling the positions of individual atoms within them.

You can have a go at simplified versions of our techniques to make sure the atoms are behaving as we expect. You can expect a multi-sensory experience involving ball pits, virtual reality, and lasers!
