How we work.

Small teams work to solve big problems.

Our Teams

Undergraduate and graduate students work together in interdisciplinary teams.  While students have roles as designers, developers, or project managers, they are encouraged to push their limits and learn new skills.  

Designers learn to develop.  Developers learn to design.  

More experienced students become mentors.

Partners are part of the team.


Our Process

Partners bring projects, data, and content. DALI designs a solution and builds a prototype. Partners integrate and distribute the results.

The DALI Method guides DALI teams through discovery and problem definition, project proposals and feature spec, design, development, testing, revisions and delivery to partners. 

We discover, design, develop, and deliver results.  We learn and iterate along the way.


Our Partners

Our partners are non-profits, corporations, government agencies, faculty members, students, and individuals.  DALI helps partners transform their ideas into reality.  We design and build tech solutions to communicate and interact effectively.  Projects range from web and mobile apps to games that influence decision making and from 3D printed medical devices to virtual reality content. 

Our Staff

DALI staff provides support, workshops, and mentorship to lab members and to the Dartmouth community.  Our full-time professional staff, faculty advisors, and part-time student staff help to create an extraordinary and supportive space where students can be creative and where ground-breaking work can get done.  

Open lab hours every Monday from 5-8 PM are available to provide help to anyone who wants concept, design or development assistance.
