Home2O Kickstarter Campaign Through Tuesday, Nov. 26, you can still back NYIT's water bottle roofing project on Kickstarter to help fund construction of a student-designed prototype shelter at the Old Westbury campus. More than 90 people have already backed the project, which is about $1,600 short of its $4,000 goal. Over the weekend, a jury reviewed designs from nine student teams and will choose three top submissions. Donors to the Kickstarter campaign can vote for one design to win the "public choice" award. Construction on the winning design will begin in spring 2014. Support the Kickstarter campaign.
