Nine teams seeking innovative solutions to the California drought will share their work at a public event Thursday evening in Balboa Park.
The event is the culmination of the yearlong Art of Science Learning incubator, an initiative funded by the National Science Foundation to spark creativity in science education. San Diego is one of three cities nationwide with an incubator program to develop ideas.
The teams will show off their ideas, and the public is encouraged to learn, collaborate, invest and be inspired. The nine teams are:
- Aqua Diao — a portable solar-powered machine makes water from air
- BeeLite — a garden water sensor provides shelter for endangered pollinators
- Built Environment Innovation Connection — a collaborative web-based platform promotes design and engineering of water neutral construction
- DIY EcoLab — an art-science activity kit integrates scientific inquiry with artistic expression
- En Plein Aire — a mobile app inspires water-smart landscape designs that embody San Diego lifestyles
- Epic Water Game — a computer game compels you to balance regional water supply and demand
- Kate’s Place Water Innovation Center — a water-wise home and garden offer hands-on learning and participatory innovation
- Sculptural Dew Collectors — sculptures harvest fog and dew, inspired by forms and phenomena in nature
- Trash to Paradise — recycled trash and wetland plants filter sewage water to create irrigation water in Tijuana
