Virtual Honduras Sustainable Communities Information Session

United States

Location: CarmenZoom
Contact: Aaron Klein

Students who participate in the Virtual Honduras Sustainable Communities program will experience the application of a broad range of engineering and non-engineering skillsets in a team-based environment working towards sustainable outcomes to humanitarian development challenges in rural Honduran communities. Zamorano University students will join teams from Ohio State to work collaboratively with the nonprofit Heart to Honduras to develop and support specific community-driven initiatives. Student teams will assess existing designs of rural community processes or systems in the water, sanitation, food, agriculture and energy areas. Based on research of existing designs, assessments of systems and community dialogue, teams will develop appropriate, sometimes incremental innovations to these systems, building and testing stateside prototypes wherever possible. Throughout the semester, groups will virtually meet with collaborating Honduran communities to complete project design and development phases.

Please RSVP for this session.
