Technology aid volunteers for Cambodia
Last night I attended the Canberra meeting of Engineers Without Boarders who do engineering projects to help disadvantaged communities, in Australia and elsewhere. Currently they are looking for a volunteer to work in Cambodia on ceramic water filter technology. The filters just look like terracotta flower pots, but are carefully engineered with specifically sized holes to filter drinking water. Several universities have incorporated the EWB Challenge into their engineering courses, including the ANU.
