This workshop will include:

This is being sponsored by the EWB-Boston Professionals and the MA State Representative in cooperation with EWB-Harvard University however it is open to all chapters within EWB-USA.  It is strongly recommended that all water projects consider attending this workshop.  A suggested donation of $10 will be collected at the event, but is not required for attendance.
