Weighing In: Problem Solving Through Design Thinking

with Design Plus



Design Plus/Indigo Moose’s learning project with Science on Tap seeks to highlight the

massive connections between the fields of science and design as they continue to overlap

and inform one another; becoming further contiguous year after year. Design Plus will

offer a short presentation about our recent design efforts and some hands on, collaborative

activities that will engage critical thinking and problem solving skills.


Design Plus is a collaboration driven Architecture and Design firm with experience

throughout Public and Private Sector projects. Recent work such as the El Vado

development has focused on both the creation and reinvigoration of key cultural fixtures

throughout Albuquerque metro as the city comes into its own. The educational branch of

the firm, Indigo Moose seeks to break down barriers and encourage collaboration between

various disciplines. Math, art, engineering, population health, and architecture all build

upon one another in interdisciplinary project based classes instigated by Pop Up Design

Studios, elementary learning, summer camp studios, and teacher training.

Why Can't We Find a Cure for Cancer?

Iraís Ortiz-Caraveo

Biomedical Engineering Masters student at the University of New Mexico currently working in the Department of Pathology for the UNM School of Medicine as a research assistant (recently published YAY). 1st generation high school and college student


"Why does it takes so long to find treatments and why do those treatments tend to fail? I’ve noticed that most people are pretty shocked to learn that we are quite limited (time, manpower, resources) in the ways we can conduct research surrounding this topic. Hollywood has created the illusion that answering scientific questions is a smooth ride and that scientists have all the tools to get answers, when in reality we don’t. But, that does not mean that we don’t try." -Iraís

The Culinary World of Food Gels

Anthony & Jason Salvagno

Anthony, Associate Director of X Studio at Explora;
Jason, Banquet Chef at White Oaks Conservatory near Jacksonville, Florida.


Former food truck brothers of S'wich It Up fame, Jason and Anthony Salvagno, are back to deliver all the hard-hitting and faced-paced action from the culinary world of food gels. Have you ever removed some chicken soup from the fridge and saw a solid layer on top of your leftovers? It turns out there are sugars in plants and proteins in animals that can create a gelatin-like structure. Food gels have been around a long time and are used in desserts, entrees, appetizers, and so much more. Learn the science that makes this possible and some simple recipes to turn dinner into a 5-star meal.

Space Nuclear Power & Propulsion

Joseph A. Sholtis, Jr.

Lt. Col, USAF (Retired) 


This presentation will address, using figures & photos, the notable 60-year history of the development & use of nuclear systems for power, heating, and propulsion in space - principally by the U.S., but also briefly by the former Soviet Union & Russia. U.S. space nuclear systems, as well as nuclear-powered/heated space missions flown, will be illustrated & described together with major discoveries gleaned, and future nuclear systems, along with their potential space applications, will be briefly depicted and addressed.
