Rakkaew Mahidol University, in partnership with the Faculty of Engineering and Mahidol University International College (MUIC) launched “Life Cycling Project” – featuring bicycle-powered water pumps – at Bahn Pad Mohn School in Nakkhon Pathom on June 4, 2015.
Rakkaew installed two bicycle-powered pumps worth 6,000 Baht each in the school. The students can pump water by using the stationary bicycles. The water could then be used for irrigating the plants in the schoolyard farm.The bicycle pumps were designed and built by lecturers and students of the Faculty of Engineering while MUIC students and Rakkaew members took care of the development, fund-raising and promotion of the project.
Mr. Tanachai Rueangchaisit, President of Rakkaew Mahidol University, said the club is looking at expanding the project to other schools.
