Friday Social Night[edit | edit source]

Hello all! As our membership is rapidly expanding beyond just SFSU students, we are instituting bi-weekly social nights to discuss club business, expand knowledge of international development, and have some fun.

The plan is to hold these on the second and fourth Friday of every month at 6:00pm. We'll probably change the location to keep things interesting. Or maybe we won't.

So join us this Friday (April 25th!) at 6:00pm at the | Squat and Gobble cafe at 1 W Portal Ave. Note: there are several of these cafes so don't go to the wrong one.

For those of us starting our senior projects next fall, some of us will be designing a medical waste incinerator which will be installed in a medical clinic currently being designed for construction in Haiti.

The Grid Alternatives collaboration is on pause due to a lack of funds. If someone you know is interested in making a $5000 donation to Grid Alternatives, we will have a project and a low income home can have a free solar panel installed
