Access to Water, Hope for Life

When people collect drinking water in developing countries, their journey can cover many miles to and from rivers or streams, sometimes in perilous conditions. At Frederick (Md.) Career and Technology Center, CAD-engineering students have been testing new designs to more easily move water collection barrels. They plan to send their handle design prototype to the Hippo Water Roller Project in South Africa by year’s end.
