To get this project up and running, we have recruited the world’s most curious, innovative, and enthusiastic scientists out there – kids. Today’s students have grown up in a world of rapidly evolving technology and they are natural born experimenters, programmers, and tinkerers. By introducing our Food Computers into several diverse schools local to the Boston area, we hope to inspire the next generation to become the high-tech farmers of the future.
Students are encouraged to adjust, adapt, and hack their Food Computers in order to perform experiments that will not only generate food, but also data and climate recipes.
We want kids and everyone else to learn more about where their food comes from, how it’s grown, and how they can get more involved with the food they eat. From botany, to engineering, and programming to nutrition, there is so much we can learn from the food computer and from each other about how we can improve the future of food. OpenAg is taking root, and together we can make it grow.
