  26. 26. Classroom tiled and ready for use. The door is only open when the building is utilized as a hurricane shelter by the community. Similar doors allow passage throughout the building in safety.
  27. 27. Not everybody could be listed. We wish to also thank BASF, Parker Hannifin Company, and Belize Open Source, to name a few more.
  28. 28. While in Belize the leaking roof on the existing school was repaired. No more leaks. The black of the roof is the build up of ash from the burning of sugar cane. Because of the slope on the new school, each passing rain helps to keep the roof clean.
  29. 29. Anemometer installed on the roof of the other school building. Data collected by the students of APR is emailed to CSU engineering students working closely with Dr. Majid Rashidi and his wind amplification turbine system to properly size the wind turbines.

There has been a large amount of interest generated in joining our organization among our peers, and attendance at the last general chapter meeting was about double (maybe even more) than what we typically expect •  Primarily concerned with staying in August Pine Ridge for the immediate future
  42. 42. CSU  next  steps   • The team was awarded the 2013 NCEES Engineering Award for Connecting Professional Practice and Education, $25,000 grand prize for its submission, Design, Funding, and Construction of the August Pine Ridge School/Hurricane Shelter in Belize – the funds will be used to repay repay part of the university loans for construction costs. • Awarded $10,000 for Alcoa Creation of a Global Engineer Grant for Water Quality and Alternative Energy project • The August Pine Ridge Water Board has done a pilot program with water meters to prepare for metering and use-based fees to encourage water conservation and reduce operating costs. • Students continue working with Dr. Majid Rashidi and his wind amplification turbine system to examine the feasibility of wind energy. Solar is also being considered.
  43. 43. Alcoa  CreaJon  of  a  Global  Engineer   Grant:  Interim  Report   Completed final assessment trip for Water Quality and Alternative Energy project •  Proposed the water treatment plant design to the community - plan to install a four tank water filtration system to rid their water of hardness, pesticides, and other unsatisfactory chemicals to allow for potable consumption •  Performed final water quality testing for both municipal and ground water sources •  Installed solar panel panel for feasibility testing is currently being monitored for electrical output levels. The electricity is being used to supplement the electrical demands of the local elementary school •  From meeting with community and water board, have identified a community contractor to assist in construction of the treatment plant

Lamar  next  steps   In October, Laura Soto, the new chapter president, provided updates: •  Speaking to members of the Spindletop Rotary Club here in Beaumont, TX to find out more about Rotary funding •  Although the project design has been completed, mentor has warned that may need adjustments to the design and travel plan/budget. If so, have 4 skilled/ experienced engineers who will not take long to make the adjustments •  After mentor review, will be able to turn it into EWB –USA HQ •  Hope to apply for EWB-grants for the 2015 Spring semester •  Will be having a softball tournament fundraiser in the spring of 2015 as well as a Gala possibly in late may 2015 or fall 2015. Plan to get speaker from Betchel, and hopefully some sponsorship from DuPont. We are hopeful that both of our fundraisers will be successful •  Provided design drawings of the percolation field and the site plan •  Because of cost, chapter has decided not to construct the restroom facility. Design is complete and has potential to become a part of the project if find a way to fund it
