It’s Game-Set-Match in Botswana, Thanks to Two Engineering Students

While in the Southern African country of Botswana for a summer study-abroad course in thermodynamics, biomedical engineering majors Ben McClarren and Dan Hageman, along with course professor Dan Lacks, brought their love for the game of tennis with them.

McClarren, who is on the university’s tennis team, and Lacks, an avid tennis player, were planning on bringing a few racquets with them on the trip so their summer needn’t be without one of their favorite pastimes, and then donate the racquets at the end of the trip. Then, a week before departure, Lacks wondered if they shouldn’t expand their contribution.
