Extreme by Design

Extreme by Design

A documentary about students building a better world, one product at a time.

At a time of unprecedented global challenges, the under-30 “millennial” generation has reason to be disengaged. Yet in fields ranging from public health to education, plenty of millennials are engaged. Call it the empathy revolution.

"Extreme By Design" brings this revolution vividly to life following three Stanford University students as they design products that address basic needs of the poor. One student’s team must create a breathing device to keep babies in Bangladesh from dying of pneumonia. Another seeks a way to store drinking water for Indonesian villagers.

The narrative begins on the first day of a course called Design for Extreme Affordability and ends eight months later with one group of students returning to Asia to test their device amid plans to launch a startup. (Source: PBS)
