The annual ID Sprint Project is underway in the Hayward Hall Studios. Our partner for the project this year is Noria Home, makers of Noria –a complete re-think of the standard window-mounted air conditioner. The design dramatically cuts the size of the standard window-unit air conditioner while retaining 5,000 BTU of cooling power: enough to cool a 160 square-foot room. There’s also an array of other thoughtful features such as a beautiful and intuitive interface and a smartphone app to control the unit from anywhere.
The project, driven in part by PhilaU Graduate ID Program alum Don Pancoe (‘14) generated considerable buzz (over 50 different online features) and has raised more than $2 million via Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Learn more here.
Junior-year ID undergrads are managing 26 teams that each contain members from every year of the program including graduate students. This arrangement enables vigorous cross-pollination within the teams. We’re looking forward to a great Sprint!
