When you can break down any system, big or small, into its components you can start to learn more about how things work, and it can even change the way you look at the world. No system is perfect, so think about how you can improve the systems around you – making them more energy efficient, using sustainable materials, creating less waste, performing the function better, or even helping improve lives – as bit by bit, this is how we build a better future!​
