With the engineering team now formed and ready, step one will be a journey to where it all began to begin collecting vital information for design and development.
On Oct 10th, 2014 the team is embarking on a 4 days journey to rural Nicaragua! While there the team's goal is to conduct surveys of existing wells, meet with the community and it's leaders and survey the land and available raw materials to begin their design work back in Canada.
A data logging wind sensor will also be installed in the village to collect wind speed data which will be downloaded monthly and analyzed by the team. This data will be crucial in the design specifications of the windmill.
We wish the team safe travels and best of luck in their first of many missions!
