Social E Lab Expo // 4:30-7:00 pm Mon, Sept. 25 2017

Please join us for the end of summer Social E Expo from 4:30-7:00 pm on Monday, Sept. 25th. This will be a celebratory evening with light refreshments. Each of our teams will share their experience testing and implementing their products and services that were started in the 2017 Design for Extreme Affordability course and then further developed over the summer with support from the Social E Lab program.

Location: 3rd Floor of the Zambrano Building, Knight Management Center, Stanford's Graduate School of Business. Parking and directions may be found here. RSVP below. 

This will be an expo-style evening with an introduction to the teams at 5:30pm. We will be celebrating the accomplishments of our teams, including:

Compacting Compadres//  a compacting tool developed in partnership with Earthenable that is designed to allow the 9.3 million Rwandans still living on dirt floors to create a healthier, more dignified living space in their homes. The device makes it easier to compact the floor, empowering homeowners who otherwise could not afford a floor to install one and make their home a cleaner, healthier place to live sustainably. 

ShonaStand// a therapeutic device that provides high quality standing therapy for children with cerebral palsy and other physical disabilities in South Africa. The device has a simple interface for the caregiver with fewer and more intuitive adjustments, as well as an ergonomic waist loading height. It has a mobile, sporty design so that standing therapy can be enjoyed both inside and outside the house, where children will have more opportunities for social engagement. Developed in partnership with Shonaquip.

Nursing Care Saves Lives // a program that aims to increase the number of quality cleft care nurses. The team has compiled a set of best practices, tools, and resources needed to implement a successful nurse training program in developing world contexts. They have also created a nursing checklist for cleft patients that will standardize care. Their work this summer has been supported by SmileTrain, an international NGO working to support corrective surgery for children with cleft lips and palates around the world, as well as CoRSU, a SmileTrain partner hospital in Uganda that executes cleft surgery and care.

Kukua // a solar-powered, low-energy, chicken egg incubator. Kukua is designed for home use by new and experienced chicken farmers. This incubator provides those who use chickens as a source of stored value, a more predictable way to go from egg to chicken. The Kukua guarantees that necessary incubation conditions are met, at a lower cost and lower energy usage than the local incubators in Tanzania. Developed in partnership with Off Grid Electric.
