Getting it Out There

Subject Name: 

Interdisciplinary Arts

Course Number: 
Hampshire College
Students, faculty and alums will collaborate to bring promising design work, which benefits people living in poverty, to a place where it can reach its intended audience on a wider scale. For Spring 2013, we will expand on the work done by previous students in designing and evaluating a portable gynecological exam table for use by health care workers in rural El Salvador. The semester's work will include outreach and market research, refinement of design details as well as research, planning and pre-manufacturing for a first production run. In addition to regular class meetings, there will be an optional companion lab in SolidWorks that will meet 2 evenings a week. We will include students with a cross section of skills and academic interests.
Instructor Permission:
