Water, Water, Everywhere!
Clean water - providing access to it is a global challenge and more than 900 million people worldwide don’t have it. Become part of the solution and get involved in the JETS TEAMS Competition. The 2010 competition is asking high school students to tackle this humanitarian crisis and your university chapter can help! We need EWB-USA chapters to share their insight and engineering experiences by hosting or volunteering at a competition.
See if your university is a competition site and if not, please call JETS at 703.548.5387 ext. 102 or email Megan Balkovic. It’s simple to get involved and JETS even has cash to get your chapter started. Earn up to $500 by recruiting high schools to participate ($25 per school up to 20) and/or win the EWB/JETS Chapter of the Year Award and take home $1,000! Inspire today’s young people and get them thinking about engineering and EWB-USA!
