2020-21 design challenge
We’re challenging you to think about engineering design in Lobitos and Piedritas, Peru. We’ve put together information about these neighbouring coastal communities, the wider area, each of our eight challenge areas as well as case studies of the local people and businesses, so there’s plenty to get you started.
