Flu Shots for Our Staff and Guests

Northwestern University Human Centered Design Project at the Hospitality Center

A group of engineering students at Northwestern working on a project that would help people experiencing homelessness visited the Hospitality Center to get input from our guests. They made a rolling device that
looks like a large suitcase and opens up to become a bed! It also has space for people to store their belongings and it can be locked to a bike rack! Enjoy pictures of the first attempt!
