Technoport Mission Rio started in early January with 800 students in 160 groups. 19 of those groups had stands at Technoport. Both the Wild for Water group and the Trå for vann group in Letizia Jaccheri's EiT village were among the top four nominated groups.
The Wild for Water group consisted of: Anette Skoglund, Kristian Rutlin, Louise Gabrielsen Sletta, Ole Mikkel Sjølie, Sabine Relling Nielsen and Siri Einarsdatter Minothi.
The department congratulates all the EiT students and Jaccheri!
