EWB-RPI runs workshop at Exploring Engineering Day!

On Saturday, February 18th, EWB-RPI teamed up with RPI’s chapter of Engineers for a Sustainable World to educate dozens of kids on the importance of water safety and filtration during RPI’s Exploring Engineering Day. After a presentation and video, the kids got to design and test their own water filters!

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!

Success from Panama!

EWB-RPI has returned from Panama and we are happy to say that the trip was a success! The rainwater catchment system and chlorine treatment stations are working and providing the community with clean drinking water for long periods of time. After a few additional supports were added to the system, the project was closed out and we are now looking for a new program.

Thank you to all the members, mentors, sponsors, and supporters of EWB-RPI who have helped us achieve this great service for the community of Sandubidi!
