Engineering Students Kindig, Tejasvi Use Break for "Cooking" in Cameroon

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Industrial Engineering student Allison Kindig and Mechanical Engineering student Sharma Tejasvi spent semester break in Cameroon making solar cookers for rural villages. Tejasvi is originally from Cameroon. Kindig worked on solar cookers last year in India. The two built four prototype cookers with help from local craftsmen.
