The University of Dayton (UD) Engineers in Technical Humanitarian Opportunities for Service-Learning (ETHOS), in collaboration with UD’s School of Business, UD’s Design Clinic, Grupo Fenix (Nicaragua), and the local Nicaraguan community, is currently working on an 18 month project to research and develop a solar medical device sterilizer (sterilizer) that can be used in rural areas of Nicaragua. Engineering and business students are working in a variety of capacities with the local community and Grupo Fenix in Nicaragua to research, design and develop the device. Once developed, the engineering and business students will continue to work with the community and Grupo Fenix to establish a micro-business for the manufacture and distribution of the device. Although this project will address a particular technical need, the infrastructure and unique partnerships that are being developed and optimized through its facilitation will serve as a model for other projects and programs that will be shared within the University of Dayton and with other universities.
