Engineers Without Borders

Saturday, January 21

My name is Michael Flores and I represent the State of Utah for Engineers Without Borders (EWB). We are a non-profit organization that utilizes engineering skills to help communities all over the world. The Utah State University EWB chapter is hosting its first EWB Utah convention on January 21st, 2017. This free event will be a unique opportunity to learn how to apply engineering skills to help others. There will be various workshops for existing EWB chapters as well as those curious about starting a new chapter.  Topics may include: managing a student chapter, fundraising, and technical sessions on water quality testing and how to build a biosand filter for water purification. We would like to reach out to all schools in the state of Utah and formally invite you to attend and see how your students can get involved in EWB.

Free breakfast and lunch will be provided.

Thank you,

Michael Flores

Science Fair Judges

Dear WSU Students, 

Please consider helping out the Ogden School District by being a judge at our district Science and Engineering Fairs.  There are 3 different dates, Feb 16th, 22nd and 23rd and we need judges for all 3 dates. Judging will occur from 8:30-12:30 and we will provide lunch for the judges afterward.

We would love to have your students help us out and show the students how active and involved WSU is with our local community. Will you please pass the word around to your students and forward them this link to a form that will register them as judges so that I can contact them.

Thanks for your support.
