EngBOX - Engineering in the box for Social Development
Our project was originally developed as an immediate solution for people in refugee camps. However, the self-protection of people in vulnerable positions of forced migration or poverty is a global problem and our system can be applied in urban centers and other regions where people experience issues such as lack of access to water, food, and energy. EngBOX emerged as a user-centered solution and educational kit where students can build their own solution, by themselves. However, students not only are building a solution, but they are also learning engineering skills and solving real-world problems in their community.
What are emergencies?
Who are our target applications?
Emergencies refer to refugee camps, locations in political, economic, and environmental crisis, asylum seekers, low-income regions, and regions with lack of opportunities to use engineering for social development.
Engineering students, schools, universities, research institutions and education initiatives addressed for emergencies.
