Our deepest gratitude goes out to all those who made this trip possible...
The team has finally made it home tonight after a 24 hour delayed flight trying to leave Cameroon on Saturday. Hooray! Job well done team! We are glad to have you home!
The travel team had a lot of people helping to make this trip possible this semester. They were supported by a design team of about 25 students who worked extremely hard trying to create the best design for our filter mold, working on efficiency calculations, researching all aspects of sustainability, and looking into expanding our solar water pumping system. Great job design team!
This trip also would not have been possible without the support of the College of Engineering or the Alumni Association. Thank you to all who have donated to our chapter over the last couple of years! In particular, thank you Murphy's Steel for providing and bending the steel for our mold, and Danny Richardson and Steve Beard for helping to troubleshoot mold construction problems.
We are holding a Benefit Dinner on Thursday March 12th at the Marriott Courtyard in Newark, DE. To further support this organization visit our homepage at http://udel.edu/stu-org/ewb/ and register for the event.
