Designing for Mars Camp at the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation’s Taliesin West

Today I had the pleasure of speaking at the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation’s summer camp on Designing for Mars. I was brought in to talk with the campers about what we need, as humans, to survive the journey and eventually settle on Mars. We talked about the basic needs to sustain life, various life support systems, and other Mars relevant risks and considerations. The camp is designed to get campers to think about settling on Mars from an architecture perspective. To me, that is STEAM at its finest and something I am very passionate about. I received great questions from the kids and it is always a joy to be back at a place with such legacy.

A BIG thank you to the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation staff or inviting me back to Taliesin West and the National Space Society’s Phoenix Chapter leadership for joining me and providing great added insight for the kiddos. 🚀
