Engineers Without Borders Gala Dinner
EWBA 10th Anniversary
Friday August 2, 2013
Engineers Without Borders Australia (EWBA) is celebrating their 10th anniversary with a Gala Dinner! Our own Sally Dominguez will be emceeing the event. Expect formal attire, fireworks, music, and a visionary look at what’s to come for humanitarian engineering.
Sally was recently named an ambassador for the organization, with which she’s shared an adventure or three. Bringing running water to a birthing room in a rural clinic, a karoake campaign to maintain arsenic-free well water, and waste management in the floating communities are some of the highlights from her trip to Cambodia with EWBA in 2011. Find out more in the archives at The Whole HOG: April 2011 edition.

Explore the legal intricacies, and hidden pitfalls of the (sometimes complex) patent process to protect a design.
