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
This project is ideal for students with a strong interest in the sustainable design of equipment. This year’s 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 25°F (or -4°C) continuously without an external power supply, in an ambient environment of 100°F (or 38°C). This device must be easy assembled anywhere in the world even in under developed countries.
