This Reno Family Foundation Symposium features an evening of discovery with David Edwards, the inventor whose artscience experiments are becoming cultural game-changers. Embark on sensorial adventure at Edwards's newest culture lab, where the public is invited to join his "willful, joyful experimentation." Sip poetic clouds of intense flavor from Le Whaf, explore olfactory music with the magical oPhone, and drink water out of flavorful, nutrient-rich WikiFood packaging. Contribute your own creative ideas to sensorial trends that will be changing our world.
Edwards sees a new kind of learning igniting across America. In maker spaces, innovation programs, and cultural discovery environments, people young and old are starting to "learn to learn" to discover the undiscovered. Among the youngest people ever elected to the National Academy of Engineering, Edwards sees "culture labs," like Le Laboratoire Cambridge, as propellers of discovery learning and a hopeful path for pioneering solutions to seemingly intractable global challenges.
Location for this offsite program: Café ArtScience and Le Laboratoire Cambridge, 650 East Kendall Street, Cambridge, MA
