D-Lab offers a unique international opportunity for students to use their math, science, engineering, business, and social-science skills to make a real impact on people living in poverty in Asia, Africa, and South and Central America.
D-Lab offers more than a dozen subjects each year covering creative problem solving, engineering and design, cross-cultural communication, and social entrepreneurship. All student projects are connected to communities in Africa, Asia, or South or Central America, and most subjects provide students with an option for fieldwork.
D-Lab innovations have included low-cost, sustainable technologies such as a pedal-powered washing machine, a hand-held corn sheller, a portable solar cooker, ceramic water filters, biowaste fuels, and a solar-powered autoclave.
