Trimtab Space Camp explores the following perennial questions that provoke ongoing life-long study. Each is inspired by an element of CADS:

  • COMPREHENSIVE: How big can we think? 
  • ANTICIPATORY: How many possible futures can we imagine? 
  • DESIGN: What can we learn from nature’s genius?
  • SCIENCE: How do we know what we know?

These learning objectives are inspired by Buckminster Fuller’s life and philosophy, summed up in his worldview, encapsulated by Comprehensive Anticipatory Design Science, (CADS).

The experience is centered around modules that each present a different framework to help you see the world and our future from a whole-systems vantage point.  These new mental models and tools will help you see a Fuller picture of the world and our collective future.
