NEST360° Invention Education (NEST-IE) is an investment in education that will provide the foundation for an innovation ecosystem and for future inventions needed for long-term health systems change.

 

NEST-IE is based on a problem-based engineering curriculum that, at participating engineering institutions across sub-Saharan Africa, incorporates: 

  • real-world, pressing design challenges

  • faculty workshops and exchange programs

  • student international internships and exchange programs

  • innovation design studios that provide students access to tools to prototype and test new inventions
