Concert for a Cause!!!

The entire class is now working hard to get, what we hope to be, a HUGE benefit party organized as a way to bring in funds for our cause. It's going to be December 6th, from 6pm-11pm at Cherrywood Coffeehouse in Austin, Tx. There will be food and drinks available, as well as LIVE MUSIC, and a silent auction. All for only 5$ pre-sale! We hope this will be a success, and are excited for it to finally take place.

So if you're in the Austin area, or simply want to make a charitable donation to the cause, please visit our benefit concert page.

And remember, any amount is greatly appreciated and will go a long way as we plan and design to get much needed clean water to this Santa Cruz, Peru school. Thanks again!!

We're going to Peru!!!

Yesterday, we recieved the awesome news that the SLAB board gave our project the green light. We plan to take an initial assessment trip in January, along with Dr. Ellzey, to meet with our contact Steve Crowell and to gather research and details for our concept design. Right now, our fundrasing team is working hard to make this possible, but we need your help. Please, if you can, take the time and donate to our cause (Choose International Engineering Education in the “Area of Greatest Need in Engineering” drop down menu, and please also indicate PUC in the “special notes” section); it will be much appreciated. Currently, this link is only for monetary donations, but if you would like to donate airfare miles, your technical expertise, or any other means feel free to contact us!

SLAB presentations

We presented our project concept selection to the SLAB board this past Wednesday, including topics such as, our country research, our contact with stakeholders, our project descriptions, the risk assessments, and the projected schedule for the remainder of the project. We feel it went successfully, and were given some good critiques, as well as, more questions to ask our on-location-contact people. We should know soon whether our proposed Santa Cruz school project gets the green light to move forward, or if we will have to choose one of our back up projects.
