Kristel K Bedregal Portugal

Education Officer

My role is to work with university departments to encourage the integration of EWB objectives into the curriculum . 

Seth Roberts

Outreach Officer

The Outreach program aims to inspire the next generation of globally minded engineers. We do this by running interactive workshops in local primary schools that encourage children to think about the challenges facing our world and the ways engineers can help. Volunteers help facilitate these workshops on Wednesday afternoons. For example, our Water For Everyone Everywhere workshop encourages children to think about the challenges many throughout the world face in trying to access clean water. They also get to design their own water filter out of common materials, developing team working and problem solving skills.

William Robertson

Storeroom Manager

I’m in my third year studying mechanical engineering with biomechanics and it’s my first year on EWB. My role as storeroom manager involves maintaining the storeroom itself, as well as facilitating the moving of the storeroom back to the Heartspace once it has been completed.
