Water filters that you eat! Plastic bags that turn into soap! At the Annual Idea Translation Lab Final Presentations on April 13th, you will hear the latest big dreams of Harvard undergraduate and graduate students that have grown out of this year’s ES20 class: How to Create Things and Have Them Matter.

The class is co-taught by Professor David Edwards and Professor Rob Howe of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, with support from postdoctoral fellows, Beth Altringer and Suelin Chen, and Jessica Lin. In coming months, all projects will be financed for further development in Cambridge, Cape Town and Paris by our partners, the Harvard Global Health Institute, the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and Artscience Labs.

The ideas presented aim to become profitable companies, non-profit organizations or major works of art, building on a strong tradition of past class successes, including: Medicine in Need (MEND), Lebone Solutions Inc, Le Whif (a new way of consuming chocolate, coffee and vitamins by breathing), the Pumpkin (a new way of carrying water inspired by a biological cell), and Soccket (a soccer ball that captures kinetic energy from being kicked around that can be harvested for electricity).

We hope that you will be able to join us to celebrate ideas, meet students, and enjoy refreshments.
