This Monday Sep. 18th, we volunteered at Free Ride, a bicycle collective located near Point Breeze Pittsburgh. We worked together to take apart some old bikes and got a bit dirty along the way. Here are some pictures taken during the event.
Approved destruction was an event that took place on Sept. 11th with a purpose to engage our new members with the executive board by disassembling various things and reassembling them back together. The event was a great success! A hairdryer was disassembled and reassembled to work again without an off switch. A disposable camera was annihilated and sadly could not capture anymore breathtaking scenery, but at least all the pieces made their way back to the case. A timer was put back together with a balloon floating alongside. Check out some of the pictures below to see more of the fun in action.
As the fall term comes to a close, the frequency of EWB events will be declining, with not much going on over the next month or so. We’ll pick up again in 2016 with a new semester, as well as a new executive board, elected at this week’s general body meeting! See the About- Executive Board page for the updated list of board members.
Attached is the November newsletter. See below.
We’ve had a couple things going on this past month, so here are a few highlights.
First off, congratulations to the winners of the campus pumpkin carving, the Batista kids, Viggo and Zali! Nice pumpkins, guys!
The pumpkin carving took place the weekend before Thanksgiving on the Frick Fine Arts Center lawn. We had a nice turnout of some students and a few families. The proceeds went toward EWB’s projects and the the winners are receiving a gift card.
Second, here’s a link to our October newsletter: October Newsletter
It’s a little late, but there is a lot more info about the past month, so be sure to take a look. Otherwise, we’ll be updating you again in a few weeks with the November info.
This is a very interesting and inspirational TED talk by Evan Thomas. Thomas started out as a EWB volunteer, and now he is a social business entrepreneur who works as a faculty member at Portland State University in Oregon.
