Exploring the Intersection of Nanotechnology and Food

For my last post, I sat down with Dr. Jed Johnson from Nanofiber Solutions to talk about how nanotechnology is advancing medicine. You can see the video here.  Today we will be talking with Dr. Farnaz Maleky from The Ohio State University Food Innovation Center about how nanotechnology is advancing the food supply. Nanotechnology is simply the science of the very small.

Farm Days

“My mom gets our food from the grocery store - that's where it comes from, right?”

Well, not exactly.

COSI is trying to connect children to the places where their food comes from. That’s why we’re bringing a little bit of the farm right into the middle of Columbus with “Farm Day: Little Seeds, Big Tractors”, taking place August 6-10 at COSI.

Quadcopters and Drones

You may have heard some talk recently about quadcopters or drones. From military applications, Amazon package delivery, and even a California based burrito delivery service unmanned aerial vehicles seem to be the emerging technology of the day. With all of these new developments people are right to be excited. Never before in history have we had the opportunity to purchase an aircraft that can be programmed to fly over a range of 1 mile without a pilot on board for less than $300. This fact positions quadcopters and drones to revolutionize transportation, agriculture, media production, military applications, and other industries as innovations are introduced.

Welcome to the neighborhood!

Happy to see our new neighbors, The Columbus Idea Foundry (CIF), getting some national attention. We think the combination of COSI, CIF, and all the other Franklinton innovators are going to make this into the coolest neighborhood in Columbus!
