MIT's D-Lab: Development through Design, Development & Dissemination
D-Lab is a program at MIT that fosters the development of appropriate technologies and sustainable solutions within the framework of international development. D-Lab’s mission is to improve the quality of life of low-income households through the creation and implementation of low cost technologies. D-Lab’s portfolio of technologies also serves as an educational vehicle that allows students to gain an optimistic and practical understanding of their roles in alleviating poverty. Ms. Banzaert will use an example-based presentation to discuss the experiences students have in D-Lab, the projects that are worked on and research conducted, and the community impact.
