Kerrie Stanley 13 August, 2018

Engineers Without Boarders Woree State High School Firstly, thank you for co-ordinating the EWB workshops.  The two young student engineers were well presented and prepared. Sid and Ruben where very friendly and the students responded very well to their workshops. Our students participated in the water filtration workshop and the prosthetic leg workshop.
