Sep 25, 2019

A National Science Foundation-funded collaboration between the University of Arizona and Dine Community College, the Indige-FEWSS program has enabled students to build an off-the-grid water filtration system with the ability to serve 50 families on the far-flung Navajo Nation. The goal of Indige-FEWSS is to teach the next generation of STEM professionals how to confront food, energy and water challenges in indigenous communities while letting traditional Navajo values and knowledge guide their work.
