“WAVES is a service-based organization consisting of university students committed to collaborating with underdeveloped communities to design and implement sustainable projects in order to improve their quality of life. Guided by faculty and professional mentors, students employ engineering, nursing, business, education, and science skills to develop solutions that not only solve immediate problems but that remain viable after the projects have been completed.”
Our Work in Nicaragua
Last summer, a couple of our E-board members along with two faculty traveled to Nicaragua to scope out potential projects, as well as collect data to start projects. These projects will be worked on throughout the year by our WAVES Projects Team, and will be installed during the next trip to Nicaragua, which is during spring break of 2023. Our current main project is a solar powered water pump, which will provide water to a community in Nicaragua.
