Event description

Description

Interested in how Engineers Without Borders began? Want to know its future? Want to meet other engineering professionals in the Twin Cities?

Join Engineers Without Borders - Minnesota on September 21st at Urban Growler in Minneapolis, MN for our fall block party!

This is our lead fundraiser for the year and everyone is asked to join! Proceeds go towards our two main projects: building a school in Guatemala and a water distribution system in Peru.



In April 2000, Dr. Bernard Amadei, professor of civil engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder, visited a community in San Pablo, Belize, to assess their water supply. He learned that the 950 Mayan Indians living in the heart of the Belize jungle lacked clean water and sanitation infrastructure, and that most of the community’s children did not attend school because their time was dedicated to collecting water from miles away.

While the community had the natural resources and motivation to build a reliable water supply system, they lacked the technical skills to design a lasting solution. Professor Amadei went home and consulted colleagues on potential solutions, then returned to the community with a prototype and fourteen of his students to put the plan into action. The team installed a clean water system supplied and powered by a waterfall a quarter-mile from the community. This simple and low-cost solution was the first EWB-USA project!

Dr. Amadei continued to harness the power of professional and student engineers to complete similar low-tech, high-impact projects in other developing countries by officially founding Engineers Without Borders USA in 2002. Since then, EWB-USA has grown from a handful of passionate individuals to an organization of more than 14,100 passionate members working on hundreds of engineering projects across the globe.



Urban Growler Brewing Company has partnered with Engineers Without Borders for this one-of-a-kind event. Ticket price includes beer and a donation to Engineers Without Borders - Minnesota.
