EWB was established at University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in February 2010 by Keith Jones, Robert Luchini, and Dhruv Patel. Through the help of their advisor Jane Staples they have started what could be a great partnership with the University.
Starting with the project Kenya prototype helping the Boston Professionals Chapter, we learned invaluable skills on how EWB works. Over the next year we dove into small projects that touched on solar energy and water testing.
We have also hosted a very successful Massachusetts region conference hosted by Julie Gagnon from the EWB Boston Professionals and Dr. Sengupta or UMD speaking on general water testing in foreign countries.
In June of 2011 we received our first project in the Bocas Del Toro region of panama, in the town of Valle Las Perlas.
Our first trip will take place in early April of this year, we will be making relations with the community as well as initial water testing and measurements of possible water sources.
