  2. 3D Printing Cases

    We got the cases 3D printed! Keith, the Flatiron School alum at MakerBot, was able to get them printed out for us. William picked them up and brought them back for Daniel and Harold to use. The first one was a bit small and the lid didn’t shut properly, but the second one was a slam dunk! Jarryd got some stickers printed with the Heat Seek logo on them, and with the sticker the case looks top notch.

  3. Sponsorships

    We got officially sponsored by Personal Democracy Media and BetaNYC! We put their names up on the site next to the Flatiron School. It’s great having names we can point to and say, ‘these people believe in us’. We’re hoping for something of a snowball effect: the more sponsors we have, the more willing other organizations will be to sponsor us, too. We’re only asking sponsors to allow us to put their logo on our website, but we’re hoping that having their support will eventually help us to reach an even bigger audience when we launch a Kickstarter campaign.

  4. Outreach Lead

    We brought on a community outreach lead! We’ve been overwhelmed trying to reach out to all the community groups and advocacy groups who wanted to work with us, so we’re really excited to have Noelle on board to help out with that. She’s super qualified, having worked in non-profit for a few years in DC before coming to NYU Wagner to get a masters in Non-Profit Management and Public Policy. No doubt her NYU Wagner network will come in handy, seeing as it’s one of the top ten programs in the country.
