Raw to Ready

How can rayon fibers – light enough for lingerie – also be the material that’s used to assemble jets? How does the sap of a South American tree help strengthen Houston’s newest stadium? And how can balsa wood – the same material used in toy models – be powerful enough to create ultra-efficient windmills that power our homes? Explore the science, innovation, and sheer genius it takes to transform the most basic ingredients into powerhouse machines. We’re going inside America’s factories and seeing it all from Raw to Ready.
