Winners of the January $2,500 Amber Grant

Friday

February 15th, 2019

We are very grateful to have received the Amber Grant for this month.

We are going to use this money to continue modifying and improving our prototype. We believe we are close to producing a filament that could be woven to make fabric. If you are an experienced weaver in the Baltimore area and would like to get involved, email Lchoi7@jhu.edu.

 

We are now qualified to receive an end of the year grant of $25,000!

We are excited to announce we have been awarded a $1,000.00 grant from the Johns Hopkins’ student entrepreneurship center to build our first prototype this January. This machine will take shredded up plastic water bottles and produce a filament that can later be woven into fabric.

We had a our first design sprint!

A design sprint is a lock-in in which teams set goals, research, and make efficient progress in short amounts of time. Our goal for this first design sprint was to finalize all plans for our prototype.

Stay updated for progress reports on our machine, which will be built in January.
