During this year’s EWB-USA Mountain Regional Conference, the ASU chapter of Engineers Without Borders was named the regional premier chapter out of the 31 chapters across the Southwest.
EWB-ASU is currently partnered with Bondo-Rarieda, a small community in western Kenya. The chapter is helping the community become more stable and prosperous by helping to develop reliable water resources for daily use. In summer 2014, EWB-USA ASU Chapter will be sending a team of students and professional engineering mentors to help a local university with their development of water systems. Students and mentors will be overseeing the construction of an observation lab the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology, which allows students at the university to study water flow through pipes, channels, materials, and special networks. Participants will also be teaching basic engineering courses about water technology to the students at the university.
