SXSW: AstroPlant – a new generation of space farmers

€ 3.000

Thieme Hennis has received a voucher in relation to the workshop he is organizing together with Angelo Vermeulen (BE) and Beth Healy (UK), with the title ‘AstroPlant – a new generation of space farmers’. AstroPlant is a ‘citizen science’ project by Border Labs and the European Space Agency (ESA) to spark the interest of young creatives for space exploration and topics such as controlled plant growth, food in space, circular systems and electronics. Using an open source kit, in the workshop the ‘citizen scientists’ will generate relevant data about plant growth for research into regenerative ecosystems for Earth as well as Mars.
