 Extreme By Design is the story of three Stanford students who design low-cost products that meet basic needs of the world's poor. During a 6-month d.school course, Design for Extreme Affordability, they travel to Bangladesh and Indonesia and race to build life-saving breathing devices, IV medicine infusion pumps, and fresh water storage systems. PBS will air the hour-long film nationwide on Dec. 11 at 10 pm (right after NOVA).

Tuesday, November 5th at 7:30PM in Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons, Room 152 we will be hosting a sneak peek at the hour-long documentary film followed by a Q&A panel with the fillmmaker, Ralph King, our HHL Center Co-Director Dr. Ozlem Ergun, Coordinator for the Center for Design Thinking at Mt. Vernon Presbyterian School- Mary Cantwell, and VP of Innovation for First Data- Scott Sanchez.

Wednesday, November 6th from 4:30-6PM in the Student Success Center, Press Room B, we will host an interactive design workshop led by filmmaker Raplh King and Stanford d.school graduate Erica Estrada. The workshop begins with a design challenge and covers five design steps (empathize, define, ideate, prototype, test). At key intervals, we present clips of the film that provide real-world examples of each step of the process. There will be an optional film screening following the workshop at 6PM for those interested.
