ASME commits $12,500 to Catapult projects

We are pleased to announce that the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) committed another $12,500 towards Catapult’s fundraising campaign for 2012’s project work.  This year we launched our first design event in San Francisco (CatapultLabs), collaborated with partners on building innovation capacity in Indonesian communities, conceptualized and prototyped safe and efficient water transportation solutions in Northern India, and developed energy financing training for the Peace Corps. (Stay tuned for the announcement of two new projects this Fall!)

We are thrilled to have another year of support from ASME, the instigating organization behind the collaborative site Engineering For Change.  In addition to sitting on our Board of Directors and advising on how we strengthen the organization, ASME and E4C also provide the opportunity for our leadership to help shape and direct the development of the ‘social impact design’ community through their Engineering for Global Development committee.

Join ASME and support Catapult’s goal to raise the final $35,000 by December 31st!
