What is EWB?
EWB stands for Engineers Without Borders. EWB-USA is a non-profit humanitarian organization dedicated to partnering with developing communities around the world. We provide engineering services through our volunteer chapter members to implement the infrastructure necessary to meet basic human needs. Through our sustainable engineering projects, we strive to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve. Thousands of members in more than 225 universities and professional chapters work to support these efforts.
The purpose of our club is to support community driven programs worldwide with collaboration of local partners to design and implement sustainable engineering projects.
We work on the same projects as the Washington DC Professional Chapter, and our goals are to support the Panama project by fundraising, and to support the El Salvador Cookstove project by participating in the design process.

A crucial part of expanding our technology-heavy society is to get more people interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). We present scientific demonstrations to people of any ages, especially children, to get them informed and interested in STEM careers and occupations. If you would like us to present a demonstration at an event, please write to us in the Contact Us tab, and we will get back to you!
