One of the biggest problems of modern world is agriculture. There is so much people in that part of the world that there is no land where plants can be cultivated. So major companies are building skyscrapers where they will cultivate plants which are needed in daily nutrition. As there are so many people living in very small area, these plants need to be cultivated quickly.
Plants can not increase their growth speed, so we wanted to find a solution. Genetic therapy was not considered as it is very expensive. We came up with an idea to treat seeds with non-thermal plasma, as it is very easy to produce it.

We are participating in #scichallenge2017 in hope to contribute to the development of agricultural engineering with our work.

Metals such as iron and copper have been present in our society for thousands of years and since then we have moved a long way. Technology is rapidly moving forward and we require more advanced materials to be used to make that technology sustainable. Silicon is at it’s technological peak meaning that we cannot use it in a more efficient way anymore. As such we have to replace it if we are to continue moving forward with our gadgets and devices. These materials could be found in 2D monomolecular layers. In this project we are talking about those. One may ask why even bother with them when we already have loads of materials. Well the thing is that these materials have some very interesting properties and because of these properties we can use them in all sorts of technologies such as nanorobotics, electronics, biotechnologies, medicine etc. In this project we have synthesized these materials, researched their properties and made a path to further research regarding their practical use in our world today. In the near future, if an opportunity comes, we plan on making a small transistor or solar cell which would have these advanced properties of our 2D materials and in the meantime we are making a big scale model of MoS2. With our research and project we are hoping to raise awareness and interest for this complex and current research of these materials lead by the leading scientists in the world.
