MIT students shine at USAID Science and Technology forum


Four technologies developed by winners of the IDEAS competition — along with several other innovations developed through D-Lab classes — were presented on Sept. 22 at the Science, Technology and Innovation Forum, an event focused on the use of innovative science and technology to solve development issues.

Hosted by USAID and the New York Academy of Sciences, the event's guests included U.N. delegates, government officials, foundation representatives and NGO leaders. In addition to table-top displays, presenters had the opportunity to give one-minute pitches on their work. MIT's young innovators showed how the Institute is working on the current development challenges.
