You may have heard about 3D printers - machines that can make real objects out of digital data.
This half term come and meet the team from Empire Cycles and Renishaw who have 3D printed an amazing bicycle out of titanium - the first of its kind! Get up close to their creation and find out how this technology could change our future.
3D printing leaves no waste metal behind, and saves time in the manufacturing process. You can also change the design and create a bespoke bicycle to suit you. Could 3D printing mean cheaper and lighter bikes in the future?
