Did you know there are living organisms that can use human waste to grow? Yes, the technology of the future may be growing!
There are types of Fungi, like mushrooms, that can be used to create new objects from others that would normally be thrown in the trash (or compost, hopefully). They have the ability to give us everything we want, so let’s discover how!
Imagine a world where you could grow anything you wanted out of your leftover lunch. From leather to furniture, the sustainable possibilities with fungi are seemingly endless!
The people who will be building the technology of the future are already sitting in classrooms across the world! The future holds endless possibilities and solutions to problems big and small. All it takes is a curious mind to get started!
