2015-2016 Academic Year

EWB worked on both projects and fundraising this year.

They sent two ERE students to Camoapa Nicaragua to assist in drilling a well for the hospital there that had no access to water. The well drilling was successful and the next step for that project is to work with the North Coast Professional Chapter to size and install a pump at the well site.

EWB also started work on the greenspace/LID/rainwater catchment project at Hoopa High School with science teacher Brian Boeing and his students. That project will most likely be completed over the summer, soon after finals week.

They created a silk screen to print their logo and graphics on upcycled shirts or any other fabric item, and look forward to having T-shirt sales and screen printing events in the 2016-2017 year.
