Temple ewb at build day for horace furness high school garden 2022

Temple University’s chapter of Engineers Without Borders is a student organization open to all majors that strives to build a better world through engineering projects that empower communities to meet their basic needs while building collaboration and leadership skills among student members.

Currently, Temple EWB is on the second phase of an international project in Ecuador with the Nueva Jerusalén community partnered with NGO Hombro a Hombro. The project involves designing and fundraising for implementation of sanitation facilites for this community of 300 people. Read more about the project here

Temple EWB has also been working locally with Vietlead and the Philadelpha Professional chapter of Engineers Without Borders at Horace Furness Highschool in South Philadelphia. The first phase of this project completed in November 2022 and included designing and build a greenhouse and compost tumblers for the school’s community garden. The second phase of the project has begun in Spring 2023 and includes adding a timed irrigation system, solar panel upgrades, and an automated temperature sensor system within the greenhouse. We are wrapping up this project in Fall 2023 but learn more about this project here.
