Project Location(s): Detroit, MI
Current Focus: Mobile app development
Mission: Create a mobile app in collaboration with EcoWorks to ensure that their lessons plans about efficient energy spending are easily accessible.
Vision: Our vision is to develop solutions that address human needs and make the world a more livable place in a responsible manner. The project aims to help a non-profit organization scale its mission of providing clean, safe water to communities around the world
Team History: We have been working with community members in Hagley Gap, Jamaica for the past 12 years. Throughout this time, we have implemented water filtrations systems, a dish drying rack, and multiple classroom resource related projects. In the last year with Blue Mountain Project we designed and tested a solar dehydrator that we planned to implement in Hagley Gap in May 2016. However, the resignation of a BMP ambassador that was one of the main proponents of the project led us to change our trip plans and instead use the time abroad to reevaluate how our design would benefit the community and help out with the clinic. This past year, we decided to conclude our long-term relationship with BMP and reach out to other organizations for new partnerships.
