Science Sandbox Project:
For Science Sandbox @ New Lab, Luis will explore new 3D food printing design tools, with a goal to create approaches that enable anyone to create their own, customized food items. His goal is to make a food design tool as easy to use as a utensil, or as easy to navigate as a menu in a restaurant. During the fellowship, Luis plans to engage with the diverse residents of New Lab and test several design approaches.
