Cornucopia

Ben Rolland ’20 and Daniel Westhoven ’21

Cornucopia designs and builds home hydroponics systems for growing vegetables with minimal cost and impact. Using locally-sourced recycled materials, independent energy sources, and compost-based nutrients we hope to localize food production and grant people the agency of having a hand in food.

Hurry Curry

Antony Gor ’20, Harrison Runnels ’20, and Krishn Rapoor ’20

There’s Panda Express, theres Chipotle, there’s McDonalds, but what about Indian food? Why aren’t there any fast casual Indian foods. Currently, Indian food is usually served in fine dining restaurants. We want to try and make Indian food more accessible. By making it faster, and newer. We want to try and Americanize Indian food. Right now, Indian food is very ethnic and daunting for many people. We want to change this and try and make Indian food easier to eat for the average American.
