The Huntsville chapter of Engineers Without Borders invites Makers Local 256 to come to a class on appropriate technologies design. To define, appropriate technology design is the use of technology to allow a community to become self-reliant; e.g. using local resources and skills to implement and sustainably operate a setup for basic resources and income. Some examples are here.
The appropriate technologies design class and tour will be starting at 10am on December 3, 2011 on-site at SIFAT‘s campus at 2944 County Rd. 113, Lineville, AL 36266. Expect it to be an all day event as it is a 3 hour drive from Huntsville (we will need to leave at 7am, some of us are planning to carpool). If you are interested in attending please sign up on the wikipage (carpooling is being arranged therein).
