Event Details

Students from the Design For UNICEF class at ITP -- New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program -- will present four creative design projects aimed at helping overcome challenges in low-resource environments and emergency situations. This year's class, taught by Jorge Just with Chris Fabian, focused on Northern Uganda. Students had contact and support from the Technology For Development team at UNICEF Uganda, and with staff from UNICEF HQ.

ITP is a two-year graduate program located in the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, whose mission is to explore the imaginative use of communications technologies — how they might augment, improve, and bring delight and art into people's lives.

Projects from previous classes include RapidFTR,, a mobile application for child protection in emergencies, and Water Canary,, an inexpensive water testing device that collects real-time water quality data from the field.


This year's projects are amazing. You should definitely join us.
