Back in April I featured sLAB Costa Rica, a design-build project of NYIT that aims to build a communal recycling center in Nosara on the country's Pacific coast. Their initial Kickstarter campaign was successful, allowing students to travel over the summer to help in the project's construction. But, as professor Tobias Holler states on their new Kickstarter page, "the project is far from completed, and much work remains to be done before the building is ready to help with the local waste management problem." Holler and his students are hoping to return between semesters in January 2013 to continue volunteering on the construction site.
Check out the above video for more on the project, and please visit the sLAB Costa Rica Part 2 Kickstarter page for even more information and to donate before the December 13 deadline for this worthy project.
