Newburyport Daily News Interviews Student About Engineers Without Borders Trip

The Daily News of Newburyport, Massachusetts spoke with Spencer Traxler, a bioengineering student at the University of Maine, about his trip to Ecuador as part of the UMaine student group Engineers Without Borders. The Newburyport native was one of six UMaine students to travel to La “Y” de La Laguna in August on an assessment trip to open the door to a long-term project to improve water security in the 300-person community. “We are going to develop a relationship with the community,” Traxler said ahead of the trip.
