Project90 will partner with Light up the World, a global non-profit that seeks to carry energy from solar power to families and communities living off the grid. A model for a photovoltaic device to be used in rural areas of Peru will be built by students. We will have the opportunity to fly to Peru to gain knowledge, such as practical evaluation and installation of the solar system, as well as cultural awareness. Through this project, members of P90 are going to carry electricity, light, and hope to communities that need them the most
Malawi Water Project’s main goal is to help provide clean water to people living in the rural areas of Malawi, Africa. Project 90 helps with collecting, fixing and restoring computers that will be used by other team members of the Malawi Water Project. The computers provided will be used to teach citizens about clean water, how to use the filters and more. Additionally, the restored computers can be used to monitor the project in Malawi. We believe that clean water should be accessible to everyone and through this project, we hope to improve the quality of life of individuals.
Project 90 is partnering with the Engineering Ministries International (eMi) and Haiti Arise, an aid organization that aims to provide poverty relief and education to improve the well-being of the Haitian people. Members will use CAD software to fully design and model a quadplex building for the Haiti Arise main campus. Through this project, we hope to improve the quality of life of Haitian students by designing them a place to study and socialize.
This project is to design and possibly travel to build a solar power system for the permanent buildings on campus at Haiti Arise. The campus right now is run mainly by generator power and occasional city power. They are looking to implement systems that can bring them away from high fuel costs, maintenance is an issue and city power is not dependable. The buildings will include technical and elementary schools, clinics, as well as various other buildings on the properties. The team has also decided to implement a subproject to create a device that uses solar rays to purify water for the Haiti Arise Society, this project will be worked on in the winter semester.
