CEAS Global Innovation Program at TBI
The Global Innovation Study Abroad Program at the Turkana Basin Institute is set to run again for Summer 2018. This unique program offers students the opportunity to find creative solutions to real problems for real people in Kenya!
Students participating in the inaugural Summer 2017 program applied their innovative thinking skills to respond to a major flood that occurred during their stay. With help from faculty, teaching assistants and resident coordinators, students developed quick and effective solutions to aid local residents!
This program is designed for students who have an interest in innovative design engineering geared toward developing populations. Using the Turkana Basin Institute as the base for their field work, students work in interdisciplinary teams to have a positive global and local impact through relevant fieldwork and case studies.
