EWB Update (October 19): Case Studies and Fair or Scare

This week's EWB meeting will be this Tuesday, October 21 at 5:30 in E5 2004. We will be having a workshop on case studies with Waterloo Cases in Design Engineering (WCDE), a group that develops case studies to be used in engineering classes. If you missed it last week, here is a link to a jeopardy game that goes through some of the concepts in the case study (regarding rainwater harvesting): https://jeopardylabs.com/play/rainwater-harvesting-in-a-small-rural-village

Fair or Scare:

Fair or Scare, EWB's Fair Trade Halloween event, is fast approaching! We are planning brief classroom visits to discuss fair trade, and to give out some yummy Fairtrade chocolate. If you are interested in having a classroom visit in one of your classes on either October 30 or 31, or in helping out with the visits or other Fair or Scare events, please email strategy@uwaterloo.ca, and we will go from there!

Thanks, and have a great week!
