Architects Raise $15K and Counting for Costa Rica

In two weeks, NYIT architecture and engineering students have raised more than the target number of $15,000 from 130 supporters on kickstarter.com to fund their trip to Nosara, Costa Rica, this summer to build a recycling and education center. Their efforts continue, with a new goal to reach $24,000 by Monday, May 21. The additional money will be used to support student travel, ground transportation, expensive specialty film equipment needed to shoot during the rainy season, and—best of all—one third of the funds raised above the initial goal will go to the local community as a cash donation to purchase construction materials for the project. Thank you to the NYIT community for its support!
