To: [log in to unmask], [log in to unmask]

Hi folks,

If you are in touch with any EWB student chapters, the following ASHRAE
competition could be a cool opportunity for them.


ASHRAE 2013 Applied Engineering Challenge Objective:

This project is ideal for students with a strong interest in the
sustainable design of equipment.  *This years challenge is to design a
solar powered (or powered by another renewable source) portable
refrigeration unit with a holding volume of 1 ft3. *  This device could be
used to transport small essential cargo (perishable foods, pharmaceuticals,
organs, sensitive equipment, etc.).  The temperature inside the box must be
maintained at 25F (or -4C) continuously without an external power supply,
in an ambient environment of 100F (or 38C).  This device must be easy
assembled anywhere in the world even in under developed countries.
