Thinking about cost as an engineering constraint brings new life to ideas. This is what makes the difference between an idea influencing a hundred people or a billion. As engineers, we make stuff. We use these skills to design solutions for extremely resource-constrained settings. Join Professor Manu Prakash as he discusses low-cost technology solutions to difficult problems in global health, science education, and ecological surveillance.
