A team of seven students, including Meghan K. McNulty ’10, left, and Andres Moreno ’10, spent three weeks in Peru last summer with the Princeton chapter of Engineers Without Borders, building improved, smoke-free stoves for 19 families. The project resulted in a design that shortened cooking time while channeling the smoke out of the home and efficiently burning its fuel. One of the first test meals for one family was the all-American favorite, pancakes.
