This past summer, a team of up-and-coming engineers helped bring clean drinking water to an African village. As part of an Engineers Without Borders project, the University of Minnesota student group implemented a solar-powered water supply system for an entire school and its surrounding community in Mulobere, Uganda. And Beth Anderson, the Institute on the Environment's video producer, was there to capture the story on video. Her documentary, Water for Mulobere, premiered April 27 in Minneapolis. The evening kicked off with a performance by the Hayor Bibimma African Dance Company, and closed with a Q&A session among the students and the filmmaker.
