Apply for Development i-Teams by Tuesday May 1st: Adapting Polar Science for the Developing World

last modified Apr 19, 2018 10:53 AM
Have you ever wondered how new ideas can help people in the developing world? Are you interested in what Cambridge can do to help? If so, then our Development i-Teams programme is for you!

This term focuses on technologies developed by the British Antarctic Survey for use in Antarctica, and looks at how these can be adapted for the needs of the developing world. Projects include using low-CO stoves to improve health, using drones and soil samples to monitor plastic pollution, and using BAS’s expertise in radio waves to predict the duration and impact of solar flares.

The course runs on Tuesday evenings from May 8th to June 12th, with approximately 4 hours of individual work needed each week, mostly involving gathering real-world feedback from experts in international development.  

For more details and to apply for a place on a team, see - apply by TUESDAY MAY 1st. Applications are welcomed from all students (undergraduates and post-graduates), post-docs and staff, as well as all members of the Centre for Global Equality - anyone with an interest in how technology can make the world a better place for the world's poorest.
