D-Lab Peru Project “Bicilavadora” Featured on CBS Evening News

Adapted from an email written by Amy Smith, Senior Lecturer in the Edgerton Center who created D-Lab, co-created the IDEAS competition, and co-founded the MIT International Development Initiative (IDI)

Here’s a great clip from about one of the projects the D-Lab Peru team was working on. It started out as a D-Lab project several years ago, won the IDEAS competition, was supported by PSC fellowships, became a master’s thesis, made it back to D-Lab for further development, and was deployed through another PSC Fellowship. A great example of how all the IDI programs fit together!!

CBS heard about the Bicilavadora when they attended International Development Night, a recent event organized by IDI Manager, Laura Sampath.
