Mykal Riley – UCL Mechanical Engineering

The materials we use in everyday objects, such as bicycles, running shoes, skateboards etc, have changed enormously in the last few decades. They all seem to be much lighter, stronger, and even unusual (some are lighter than air!), all thanks to clever engineering from the visible to the atomic scale. But how do engineers create materials with such unique properties, and how do they go about "pushing the boundaries" of what is possible?
