Secondary: UBC Engineers without Borders Youth Venture Competition

ArushaTimes News

On January 29-30, 2022 our grade 11 students, Faith F., Grace K., Alex M., Michael C. and Filbert W., participated in the annual UBC Engineers without Borders Youth Venture Competition. This year’s topic was Water Pollution. “Throughout the competition, we learned about the different initiatives combating water pollution globally and went through the classic Engineering Design Process. Groups could focus on either fecal, plastic or oil pollution. We ultimately chose to go with fecal pollution. We all worked diligently to create a solution that would best combat fecal pollution and collaboratively came up with something we were all proud of. Though we didn’t win, the experience was memorable and is something we will definitely do in the future.”
