Ghana Initiative_Princeton EWB.jpg

Tomorrow Princeton’s Engineers Without Borders chapter will be at the Princeton Public Library to  collect books for their ambitious Ghana School Library Initiative. The EWB students aim to build environmentally and ecologically sustainable libraries in Ghana to promote English language skills and education.

The daylong drive will feature live music and dance, including a performance by Princeton University’s breakdance group Sympoh. By the way, here is a terrific dance video of Sympoh made last year by mechanical and aerospace engineering student Taofik Kolade, who graduated in May; Taofik is the last dancer in the video.

The Keller Center for Innovation in Engineering Education has been a steadfast sponsor of Engineers Without Borders projects. Yesterday the School of Engineering hosted a daylong program as part of a dedication ceremony in honor of Dennis and Connie Keller, who recently made an  extraordinary $20 million gift to the center.

The program featured a keynote address by Princeton Engineering alum Norman Augustine on the future of engineering. It also featured a panel discussion of engineering deans on the subject of  engineering and society. Princeton’s H. Vincent Poor moderated the deans panel, which included Linda Abriola of Tufts, David Munson of the University of Michigan, James Plummer of Stanford, Subra Suresh of MIT, and T. Kyle Vanderlick, of Yale.
