Arcelia – one of our students that is pursuing an Engineering degree – entered into a national science and technology competition. Her task was to create a project that meets one of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals promoted by the United Nations Organization. Arcelia’s goal was to build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization, and foster innovation.
Arcelia created the Eco-Brick, and in January 2021 she was informed she achieved second place in the contest.Eco brick is a project that aims to produce bricks with recycled materials from construction waste and using high-density polyethylene, which is a widely used plastic and easy to find in containers. Eco-Brick has a greater resistance to heat and more durable than a normal brick due to its composition.We are so proud of Arcelia.If you would like to support students like Arcelia, please click and make a donation https://gibsonsotofoundation.org/donations/#womenempoweringwomen#WomenInSTEM
