Bacteria can help us make new smartphones and laptop. Err…Not sure if we have lost our mind here?

Pinch yourself. This is reality.
In this episode with 10-year old Agastya Deshpande from Nahar International School, Mumbai, you will hear all about scientists who have discovered new uses for bacteria. They have the ability to accelerate the process of extracting metals.

Why do we need bacteria, you ask? The demand for phones and gadgets is only growing. We are in need of many rare earth minerals that are used in our devices. Bacteria will come in handy in extracting these from our old discarded gadgets.
