A business that obliterates trash that fouls the sea. An inspirational weaving of engineering design, entrepreneurial savvy, and social and ecological responsibility. A Lehigh education as the basis of sustainable, international impact. And endlessly, endlessly cool. Come hear from mechanical engineers Kevin Ahearn and David Stover, Class of 2007, who just launched their dream start-up firm in Chile with partner Ben Kneppers from Northeastern University. Bureo Skateboards employs members of its local community to collect plastic waste from the coastline, and then uses advanced manufacturing techniques to transform three pounds of ocean-clogging junk into one sweet ride.
