Extreme by Design 1x56

Extreme By Design vividly brings to life one of the most-talked about trends in education and business: design thinking. The film captures the experience of 40 students from Stanford University’s Institute of Design as they apply the design thinking process to create products that may save thousands of lives in Bangladesh, Indonesia, and other developing countries they visit. The student teams, from multi-disciplinary backgrounds, tap creativity they didn’t know they had to tackle seemingly impossible assignments. The class draws on methods from engineering and design, and combines them with ideas from the arts, tools from the social sciences, and insights from the business world. Believing that they can and will make a difference, the students open their hearts and brains and remarkably, almost magically, their products take shape and work.
