Without plants the human race couldn’t survive on the planet – we need nanobots for that!

Nanobots work furiously and specifically to produce the products required for a plant to respire, respond and reproduce. Using his research, Dr Nate Adams dissects the roles of nanobots in making plants green and, using exciting demonstrations (with fire and explosives!) brings photosynthesis, chemistry and spectroscopy to life on a big scale. Join him and understand how the work of nanobots helps food security and sustainability.
