Join the UCL Engineers Without Borders UK (EWB) for a pop-up event that will focus on its ongoing Mexico project, in an area called San Miguel de Allende. Here the communities primary water source is contaminated with arsenic and fluoride and prolonged consumption has resulted in significant health problems. EWB-UCL has worked with the local community and NGO IRRI to come up with providing clean and safe water. Project team members will be on hand to meet visitors and answer questions.

The event will also feature arsenic and other poisons from the Geology Collections.
