Student projects in D-Lab classes are defined by community partners and social ventures around the world - we don't always know what is needed, but our community partners do, and our students have technical knowledge and skills to contribute to that work.
Each semester, through a selection of full-semester classes, our students form into teams to work on projects framed by community partners – NGOs, local nonprofits, and social entrepreneurs. At the end of each semester, students present their work to their peers, partners, and guests.
