Students will work in a studio environment to iteratively design, build, and test technical projects in partnership with different social change organizations. Students will be placed in small teams to collaboratively work on projects that will range from, for example, developing a chatbot to aid community engagement to conducting geospatial data analytics. Through the course, we will also reflect on our positionality and ethics in engaging in social impact work and what it practically means to leverage technology to create social change on an everyday basis. Enrollment limited to 12. Entry to this course is through application only. Students who wish to enroll should fill out this survey below. Selected students will receive an override code before the end of shopping period.
