Newsletter – Mar. 24

Hello all,

Hopefully everything is going well as classes start wrapping up. Below are some reminders and updates from the chapter!

Member Learning

Erin and Alyssa will be leading member learning this week on March 26th. During the session, "Even Super Heroes Work Better Together", we'll be exploring what it means to be a hero, designing an all-star team of superheroes, and delving into our own superhero alter egos.

Presidential Elections

Please welcome Alanna Howell as our new chapter president for the 2013-2014 school year!

World Water Day

On Friday, March 22nd, EWB led an activity at the Canadian Water Resources Association’s Student and Young Professional Seminar on water-related issues. Our activity was about governmental decentralization in Malawi and how it is affecting the water sector. Thanks to all those involved, it was a success and many good ideas were generated.

GE 121 Class

EWB is working with the staff involved in modifying the GE 121 class this term. Through our influence, a peer evaluation component has been implemented. In about a week, the concept of empathy maps will be introduced.

Run to End Poverty

Join the movement and run 10K, ½ marathon, or marathon in the Saskatchewan Marathon on Sunday May 26th, 2013.
