Solar Powered Water Heaters

The University of Tulsa's student chapter is leading the design of a solar powered water heaters for showers and sinks. Their innovative design uses two-liter bottles found along the side of the road (trash is either thrown out or burned), PVC pipe painted black, and some valves. They went on an implementation trip in May 2012 to teach interested citizens how to erect their own heater. In the process, the community about heat transfer, and, most importantly, encourage proper hygiene.
