Eben Bayer, Co-Founder of Ecovative Gavin McIntyre, Co-Founder at Ecovative
Eben was always thinking about how to combine the things he saw every day growing up on a farm with his interests in science and innovation. Gavin liked the idea of designing new materials that fit his interests. Together, Eben and Gavin work on developing Ecovative's Mushroom Materials™ with the goal of replacing plastic packaging materials with environmentally friendly, compostable, mycelium-based materials.
The story and innovations at Ecovative form the core of our Mushroom Maestros curriculum module, which includes elementary lessons that can be used in ELA, math, science, art and social studies classes. Click here to learn more.
