Join the World Affairs Council and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Discovery Center for an educator workshop that takes a closer look at how design thinking has improved economic opportunity and health for women and girls across the globe. Connect with stories that illustrate the use of design innovation to address some of the world’s most critical problems in our current special exhibit, Design with the 90% and leave with ways to apply this work in your classroom.

The evening will include a discussion addressing gender equity and poverty through the lens of design thinking.

Presenters at this event include María Veronica Buch and Melody Juarez with Maya Pedal Guatemala who will be joining via video conference call to personally share their work.
Maya Pedal designs, manufactures, and distributes over 20 different models of bicimaquinas (bike-machines) made from recycled bicycles in Guatemala. First designs were humanpowered agricultural machines, later expanding to include a broad range of applications, from a bomba (water pump) that supplies water to local neighborhoods to a bicilicuadora (blender) used to make shampoos. Easy to fabricate and maintain, these ingenious low-cost devices are made with a few bike parts and only require basic tools and a welder. The fully Guatemalan workshop supports micro-enterprises, energy independence, and sustainable development to improve the environment, health, productivity, and the economy of local families.

The workshop cost is $20 and includes food, 3 FREE clock hours, and an in-depth curriculum resource guide on the topic. Validated parking is also available.

Design with the 90% was organized by Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, New York.
