This category is for Humboldt State University's summer immersion in Appropriate Technology and Spanish taking place in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. We are a group of U.S. and Dominican students working together with various community members to co-create sustainable solutions. You can see more program details or see projects from past summers at HSU Chiapas and HSU Parras.

In the summer of 2011, students studied appropriate technology and Spanish while working with community members of La Yuca to build a schoolroom from plastic bottles and concrete, lit with solar and homemade wind power from bike parts and newspaper press waste, that catches its own rainwater for cleaning and drinking.

In the summer of 2012, students returned to Santo Domingo to continue our learning and community collaboration. Students worked with community members of La Yuca to make the renewable energy system from bikeparts and newspaper press waste more hurricane safe and durable, and to make the rainwater catchment more potable and tested. In addition, students worked in Las Malvinas II to build a classroom from plastic bottles, concrete, sawdust, papercrete and industrial wood waste for 25 young students.

In the summer of 2013, students returned again to Santo Domingo. Students and community members worked together to design and construct:

In 2014, we continued working with the communities of La Yuca and Las Malvinas in addition to a new partner community Arroyo Norte. Together, the following projects were designed and constructed:
