- Meeting up with Andres, a researcher at Sirena and the one who initially requested for this project. We gathered a multitude of useful information from him.
- Preparing for presentations to the Student Advisory Learning Board (SLAB) in Simon's abode while listening to indie music and eating homemade food.
- Adopting a new member to our team in Spring 2012, Rosanna. As our project deals significantly with electricity, her electrical engineering background provides a beneficial addition.
- Collaborating with Dr. Gilbert, a UT professor who did research for his PhD at Sirena. He will be helping us search for funds.
- Learning about project development, teamwork, micro hydro power plants, and Costa Rica.
|What starts here with us, changes|
Costa Rica and the world.
- Total funds raised so far: $0. We've tried contacting many company foundations, but to no avail. We'll keep searching for money as we truly believe our project is something of value to Sirena, Corcovado National Park, Costa Rica, and the biodiversity community.
- Seeing two other teams denied permission to continue their projects for the time being. We are sad for their unfortunate ending, but we are also very grateful that our project is still going.
Right now, there are still many tasks to accomplish before implementation. We will continue to work hard in developing the micro hydro project. The two main tasks that we're focusing on right now is fundraising and design.
