Rather than our normal wine tasting this year, EWB-OK East and EWB-TU will be partnering up for a fun night of Trivia! We will be covering pop culture, current events, and all things STEM! Teams will consist of 4-8 people. If you don't have 4 people, just let us know and we will set you up with another group. A silent auction will be taking place during the night as well. Ticket prices will be $25 and can be purchased here. Tickets will include food, soft drinks, tea, etc. A cash bar will also be offered.

The community members of Machacamarca have requested a project for eco-latrines, solar showers, or an irrigation system. During our assessment trip, we will gather information about current methods of sanitation and which areas are most likely to be contaminated because of the current sanitation. After, we will begin testing the contamination in the farmlands, the water sources, around the homes of community members, and common areas for community gatherings. The data are going to help determine the areas that need the new sanitation system first.
Tulsa Eco Latrine
EWB-USA Oklahoma East is a group of professionals in the Tulsa area with a background in engineering. We currently assist student chapters around the NE Oklahoma area and are working with the University of Tulsa on a new project in Bolivia.

We have previously worked in Cotani, Bolivia with Engineers in Action. When we first arrived in Cotani, they had 3 flushing toilets for their entire community. Most citizens did not have access to the toilets, so as a result their water sources and food sources were being contaminated.  Out chapter designed what came to be known as an "eco-latrine" - a composting toilet which requires no water. After a year the compost may be used on non-edible plants and fruit trees. We built 7 for the community, along with solar powered water heaters, and were working on a water distribution project when a change in local leadership led to a hold being placed on the project.
