Envelope 2015

Envelope 2015, held in August of 2015, was a seminar event organised by the Engineering Good Student Chapter. Envelope exposed and engaged more than a hundred students to how organizations in Singapore use sustainable and appropriate solutions to help various communities, be it in Singapore or overseas. Guest speakers included speakers from World Toilet Organization, Operation Hope Foundation, Ground Up Initiative, NUS Energy Office and many more!

The first half of Envelope consisted of a series of talks by our invited guest speakers, where they introduced Humanitarian Engineering as it is done in its many different forms, showcasing the many possibilities for students to engage in Humanitarian Engineering as it best suits them. In the second half of Envelope, students could chose to more directly engage with speakers they were more interested in by joining their respective short workshops.

Project Make-Possible with IES-NUS

Project Make Possible was an event to help bridge the current gap between engineers and disadvantaged communities. Project Make-Possible began with a Humanitarian Engineering talk, where participants were introduced to the concept of Humanitarian Engineering, followed by a Makerthon.

The Makerthon was made possible through collaboration with Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) Labs and the Society for the Physically Disabled (SPD). Over a week, 10 teams of 4 participants went to SPD to learn more about the problems faced by the physically disabled and develop prototypes to tackle problems identified for a mini-competition. The winners were awarded a total seed funding of $3000 with the option of continuing their work with SPD.

Read more about the event at SPD’s publication on Project Make-Possible and check out more photos at Project Make-Possible’s Facebook page!
