What activities does your society do?

EWB runs a number of activities both on and off campus. These include the following: – Our School Outreach workshops held in conjunction with EAIT teach and inspire school age students on STEM and the field of humanitarian engineering. – We organise Regioneering trips which take these workshops out to regional schools and communities in Queensland, such as the Torres Strait. – We host workshops for University students on implementing Appropriate Technology in developing countries. – We collaborate with other humanitarian-focused societies to deliver careers and networking nights. – We provide support and information for students hoping to attend EWB Design Summits in third world countries.
Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages for events we have coming up! At the beginning of each semester, we host a nEWBie night to inform people on how they can get involved, and we also hold a training session for anyone interested in volunteering for our School Outreach or Regioneering activities.
EWB UQ is one of the many university chapters associated with EWB Australia, and we often work together with the National and Queensland chapters, as well as the other QUT and Griffith university chapters. It’s an excellent way to meet other like-minded students and professionals.
