Elequa.io is developing an online hub for open source water innovation, collaboration, and education. Join our hands on workshop that teaches you how to build and test an open source water coagulator.
Learn about elequa.io collaborating with Angelo State University’s 2016 Physical Science Study Abroad Program, in order to expand access to clean water, science and filtration know-how to under-served communities in Colombia and to minority students in West Texas through the Texas Association for Minorities in Engineering (TAME).
