The team also worked on possibly built a family-size biodigester for small family to use where they researched and brainstormed different biodigester designs to be continued next semester. For example, the Biodigester team demonstrated the purpose and how to make a biodigester at the Symposium in Haiti which has inspired the students over there to start build a biodigester on they own to serve as a new way to provide nutrients for the soil.
