Event Details

Design for America, d.school, Engineering World Health, Engineers for a Sustainable World, HUB, IEEE at Northwestern, Kellogg IDEAS, NED Talks, SEEDi, Segal Design Bridge, and Society of Women Engineers present an exclusive pre-screening of EXTREME BY DESIGN!

"EXTREME BY DESIGN, airing in primetime nationally on PBS in 2013, follows a band of college students who design and build products to solve seemingly intractable problems for the world’s poor. One student’s team must create a breathing device to keep babies in Bangladesh from dying of pneumonia. Another seeks a way to store drinking water for Indonesian villagers.

This hour-long documentary film begins on the first day of a Stanford University course called Entrepreneurial Design for Extreme Affordability and ends a year later after one group of students returns to Asia to test their device in the field amid plans to launch a startup."

This screening will be followed by a Q & A session with the film's award-winnng director, Ralph Kind. Light refreshments provided.
