Design for Complex Environmental Issues: Building Solutions and Communicating Ideas

Students work in small groups, under the guidance of researchers from MIT, to pursue specific aspects of the year’s Terrascope problem. Teams design and build prototypes, graphic displays and other tools to communicate their findings and display them in a Bazaar of Ideas open to the MIT community. Some teams develop particular solutions, others work to provide deeper understanding of the issues, and others focus on ways to communicate these ideas with the general public. Students’ work is evaluated by independent experts. Offers students an opportunity to develop ideas from the fall semester and to work in labs across MIT.
