IAP 2012 Activity

Pahoehoe: Do-Gooders Behind the Desk
Alison Hynd, Kate Mytty
Thu Jan 19, 12-01:30pm, 1-135

No limit but advance sign up required (see contact below)

5 MIT staff members share their public service passions through 5 minute presentations.

What is Pahoehoe? Literally, its a type of lava flow with a multitude of active, spreading, toes. Figuratively, its a forum for the MIT community to share their public service work and spread their ideas.

Join us to hear from five MIT staff members who are making a difference in communities near and far. You’ll hear about a rowing program for cancer survivors, cell phone technology for detecting hearing loss in Brazil, athletes who are running to end cancer, and more.

Come and learn what the amazing people behind the desks at MIT are doing and get inspired to act on the issues you care about.

The five minute presentations are informal, informative, and infectious (in a good way!).

Thursday, January 19th, noon-1:30 pm
