Pratt Show Success: Beyond the Tap

It’s not every day that we see students that are affecting real, direct change and assistance to those in need with their design. Carolyn Schaeberle (M.I.D. ’09), traveled to Honduras for her graduate thesis, “Beyond The Tap,” and has developed several innovative, yet simple, ways for improving water transport and maintenance in developing countries, for whom availability of water could be a matter of life and death. Carolyn’s globally-conscious vision with a perspective rooted in local Honduran culture has made this project a success bigger than your average eco-trendy products, and we think she’s a superhero!

Check out Carolyn and the sustainable happenings at Pratt at the (beautifully-designed) Center for Sustainable Design Studies (CSDS) website!
