University of Minnesota Students

Students from the University of Minnesota met with Biome on May 24th, 2019 to better understand the water context in Bangalore. It is part of their Design for Sustainable Development course, where they work in teams with local partners to research and design sustainable solutions for social and environmental challenges.
