The project was a suspended pedestrian bridge in Utuado, Puerto Rico! It reached 200 ft., was about $40,000 of material and it was completed in June! This brought about the collaboration with Engineers for a Sustainable World from UTEP. Dr. Ivonne Santiago, professor at UTEP, has had several conversations with the community organizer and mayor from Utuado. She is from Puerto Rico and is a professional engineer licensed in Puerto Rico. With her help we were able to find a project and bring in a whole new dynamic to our group! Shout out to ESW-UTEP for helping us out!
We completed the suspended pedestrian bridge with 30 students from NMSU and 10 students from ESW-UTEP! We are currently working on sharing our story from Puerto Rico! Thank you to our advisers, donors, sponsors, and volunteers for the wonderful experience! We are also working on finding new projects, recruiting, and getting ready for another year! We hope to get going once fall semester starts!

Summer 2016, Aggies Without Limits went to Alamogordo to test Rammed earth and Adobe. This was to help figure out which was best suited for housing.
