IEEE direct to student program (D2S): Changing dynamics of education and innovation.

In: (Global Engineering Education Conference (EDUCON), 2014 IEEE, 3-5 April 2014). 2014.
Most of the developing countries, suffer from an intrinsic and extrinsic divide between the classroom education and its practical implementation for societal well-being. In a new program termed as 'IEEE Direct to Students'(D2S) we try to lessen the gap by involving college and high school students, and young professionals. D2S aims to empower rural and urban informal sector youth to address district problems via frugal engineering innovations. The first pilot of the program was done in Philippines through seminar and awareness lectures, handson projects and exhibitions, and will be rolled out in newer geographies based on the initial observations of the pilot study.
