  • Scientist and Bioartist (Seth Shipman and Joe Davis) – Time traveling through DNA.
  • Martian on Earth (Nagin Cox) – Think working with people across the US or overseas is hard? “What time is it in Istanbul?” Interplanetary coordination is even trickier. Mars doesn’t have a 24 hour day.
  • Urban Planner (Armando Carbonell) – In a post-climate change world, urban planners are using Exploratory Scenario Planning to test strategies under multiple future conditions.
  • A Cappella Group (Harvard-Radcliffe Veritones) – To emphasize diversity of genre and culture, we will perform our own arrangements of selected numbers from the hip-hop musical, Hamilton.
  • Historian (Doug Ambrose) – What would you do to preserve your reputation for public integrity? Would you risk destroying your personal life? Alexander Hamilton did.
  • Interaction Researcher and Designer (Viirj Kan) – Designing a new medium with flavor molecules and food materials to transform the material world into sensor-displays.
