ImpactLabs Nigeria 2017

Welcome to the third edition of the ImpactLabs Summer Workshop! Applications are currently under review. We will get back to selected students by the end of the July 2017.

ImpactLabs is an initiative launched by students and graduates of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard University in 2014 when we launched the first summer camp at the University of Lagos. In 2015, we were joined by the Technology Innovation Labs (TIL) of Bells University of Technology, Ota, Nigeria. Our instructors bring varied expertise in engineering design and software. During our camps, the participants gain hands-on experience combining techniques in software and engineering design into real-life technology. 

The 2017 program will be residential and will take place between August 14-25, 2017 at the University of Benin, Benin, Edo State. The 2015 program details can be found here

Because we provide this program at no cost to the students, we are always looking for new sponsors. If you or your organization would like to support the program with financial or in-kind sponsorship, please contact us at impactlabs@mit.edu.
