As a member, you get access to a community committed to helping people and making a difference, just like you. It is a platform for you to develop practical solutions through collaboration and research. A chance to get your creative juices flowing and at the same time, determine the feasibility of your ideas.

Project Details

Week 2 : First meeting (Introduction and ice breakers) - Friday

Week 3 : Bring in EWB members to talk to the group. Give the group the first question and checklist.

Weeks 4-8 : Weekly challenges/questions from different problem areas to allow the group to brainstorm and research solutions. Compile the ideas put forth each week and vote for the top 2 based on a checklist. The checklist will be similar each week. A couple of points may vary with each topic.

Week 9 : Discuss what a project proposal should look like and thus filter through the top 10 ideas from the previous weeks. Vote for ideas the group wants to take to the next step.
