UTEC - Collaborative Field Program in Lima Peru
Students will spend 6 weeks in Peru learning about Soil Analysis and using an existing prototype soil analysis device to test a variety of different soils from different regions in Peru. Students are expected to further develop the device and explore implementation strategies that take into account the severe resource limitations of the Amazon region. Become a part of the solution to some of the most pressing global environmental issues at the intersection of engineering, business and policy.
Following the 6 weeks in Peru, Students will return to Harvard’s campus (optional for Harvard students, required for Peruvian students) to further develop and perfect the device for farmers to test nutrients in their soil.
