Chili Cook-off

It’s time to reward yourself while giving to others by coming to the first ever EWB Chili Cook Off!  Who are you giving to? Well first, you are giving the cooks an opportunity to satisfy your taste buds and even a chance to win bragging rights and a fun prize.  Second, you are giving to the student body of WWU by showing them who we are and how cool our club is!  Lastly, and most importantly, all the money raised goes to our International Projects Fund. If you are interested in helping this event be a big success by being a cook, baking cornbread, setting up and tearing down, or serving chili on behalf of cooks when needed, please contact ewb@wallawalla.edu.  

We would love to have you involved!

 Keep an eye out for the posters that look like the one below, and spread the word for cooks and “judges” (i.e. those who will be tasting the chilies and buying bowls, etc.).

New Classrooms in Nueva Suyapa, Honduras!

  • Our new classrooms, set to begin use in February of 2013, will provide classroom space for approximately 250 students. Assuming a thirty-year lifetime for the concrete structures, the cost per student per year to construct these classrooms was just $7.05.
  • By providing electricity to the classrooms, we have enabled the communities to teach adult education classes in the evenings, potentially serving a population of 500 adults. Read more on our “Project” page.


Local Projects

In an effort to give back to our local community and to involve more students, WWU-EWB is undertaking local projects in the Walla Walla area. Students are partnering with SonBridge, a local charity, and will also be working on a local water-testing project.

Engineers Without Borders-USA (EWB-USA) Projects help developing communities worldwide with their engineering needs, while involving and training internationally responsible engineers and engineering students. Engineers Without Borders at Walla Walla University (EWB-WWU) is a student chapter of EWB-USA.

Engineers Without Borders at Walla Walla University is committed to improving the world we live in, locally and abroad. We decided to take action and help the world through direct, lasting, and personal contributions to communities in the form of infrastructure and resource management.
