EWB-RPI goes to the UConn Mini-Conference

On Saturday, February 4th, EWB-RPI attended the EWB Mini-Conference hosted by the University of Connecticut. Since RPI is one of the only chapters to have a recognized EWB-supported local project, former club president Elizabeth Kwon ran a breakout session during the conference to teach other chapters about creating new international and local projects. We also were able to collaborate with other schools about topics related to club membership, community communications, water testing, fundraising, and more!

We’d like to thank Tom Rebbecchi for running a wonderful conference at UConn!
