Engineers Without Borders
March 20, 2023
Six Hajim Students who are members of the Engineers Without Borders student chapter were in Don Juan, Dominican Republic, during January break. They were making adjustments to a water purification system the EWB chapter installed for an elementary school during previous trips.
The team member included past president, Andrew Rojnuckarin '23 of chemical engineering, EWB member, Hannah Rickert '25 of BME, and Katie Lambright, '26, Bridgit Nguyen, '26, and Hong Zhang, '25 of BME.
"The goal of the engineer goes beyond just building something," Rickert says. "Being able to take these trips and see how what we design, and monitor can impact a community firsthand is a gratify experience." The project "really shows how engineers can truly make a difference," she added.
