Tech & Innovation in Government (DPI-663) Spring 2019 Application
/// About the Class
This course seeks to equip students with the technology and innovation skills to tackle real problems in government.

The class will consist of teams of 5 students per assigned government client. Each team will scope their project/problem; conduct user research in the field; rapidly design, build and test lightweight prototypes; and, if relevant, create a plan to scale their product. Teams will also offer policy, operations, and strategy recommendations. Teams are expected to work transparently, blogging about their findings several times during the class.

/// Who You Are
We are looking for students with an interest in technology and government, who can dedicate 12-15 hours per week to their projects, and deliver for their clients. While no specific experience or class is required, we seek to create interdisciplinary student teams who will make this class a priority.
