Dourdeville Lecture – Improving Accessibility to Science Through Low-Cost Technology

November 19 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

You are invited to the 5th Annual Dana M. Dourdeville Lecture on Engineering in Service to Society, given by Stanford professor and MacArthur Fellow Manu Prakash.

Thinking about cost as an engineering constraint brings new life to ideas. This is what makes the difference between an idea influencing a hundred people or a billion. As engineers, we make stuff. We use these skills to design solutions for extremely resource-constrained settings. Join Manu Prakash as he discusses low-cost technology solutions to difficult problems in global health, science education, and ecological surveillance.

Reserve your seat in advance.
