Activities & Events
Students participate in a number of activities and events throughout the academic year, both formal and informal. The program hosts public lectures and program socials, while students organize group outings. In addition to working closely together, students are encouraged to engage and network beyond the program given the amazing variety of groups and events happening all across campus.
MDE Public Lectures
During both years, students attend guest lectures given by innovators and leaders in business, government, design, and engineering. These talks, whether public or private to the MDE group, invite interaction with speakers, as well as graduate and undergraduate students, faculty, and staff from the larger Harvard community. Past speakers include:
“The Paper Airplane Guy”
Iyinoluwa Aboyeji & Emmanuel Adegboye
Future Africa & Utopia Lagos
