Natural History Museum of Utah Lecture Series
Harper is the principal investigator and director of the Open Agriculture Initiative at MIT Media Lab.
2015 National Geographic emerging explorer, Caleb Harper has taken the forefront of futuristic farming as the leader of a diverse group of engineers, architects, and scientists in the exploration and development of future food systems.
As the climate changes and water becomes scarce in many parts of the world, growing enough food to feed a growing population will be a challenge. Harper is working to solve this problem by using technology to re-envision the way we grow our food and move farms into our cities.
Join Harper in imagining a world in which food can be farmed from anywhere via a personal food computer, and your plants can send you a tweet when you’re away to tell you how they’re doing. Hear how it’s all possible.
Doors open at 6:15 p.m. and the lecture will start promptly at 7 p.m.
