Final Presentation Day

people were standing inside the room for lack of seating!
Our group went first, and presented well. I think we were beyond having
nerves since we have been working so closely for the past months that
we know the project inside and out. The other projects also did really
well–I was truly impressed by what the other groups accomplished
(especially after seeing the work progress from the time we spent in
Guatemala to this point). Other projects included: Portable water
filtration system, Ergonomic tips for crutches, Child walkers for
rehabilitation, Hand-held electric power generating flashlight,
Fuel-efficient kiln for brick-making, Shoe design. After the presentations, we had a
poster session, and then a celebration dinner at Hamburger Hamlet!
Here are pictures taken from the poster session…..
