Net Impact is an organization that does exactly this--and more, to empower student leaders and help leave your mark on the community. Part of impact "stems" from the belief that design can be used to solve challenges. A growing movement of social innovators from many backgrounds are applying design principles to questions such as: how might we create an incubator for premature babies in remote poverty, improve mobility for amputees, or empower girls in Zambia to determine their own reproductive health?
As a chapter, we will host an array of events/programs during the year such as: design sprints to help solve a sustainability challenge in a low-income neighborhood, career fairs, pro-bono consulting for non-profits, speakers on the topic of climate change, campaigns about the importance of being a global citizen, and so much more.
We are a community of leaders who want to use STEM to make an impact in the world. Join us!
