During this two week program students will apply engineering design to innovate agricultural practices. The 2020 Mars mission will see the launch of the rover Perseverance which will drill for core samples of Martian rocks and soil. Students will draw inspiration from this mission to answer the question, “How can we grow food in a contained environment?”
