Project Lede Update!

I would preface this in some way, but the news is too exciting not to share it right up front:

Project Lede WON in our category of the Harvard i3 Innovation Challenge!

This means a lot of things, but mostly it means that we are receiving (a lot of) money from Harvard that will help us make this summer (and beyond) GREAT! The funding also makes expanding the project a much more attainable reality, and we can now plan for the long term with a higher level of certainty than before. Jackie and I had no idea that we could win this thing, and we are so excited and so grateful for this new development.

Thank you everyone for sharing that link. We have received a LOT of support, and it has been such a wonderful and unexpected thing to be getting tips and encouragement from the many people who have heard of our project in the past few weeks/months.

I told Jackie that I was going to have trouble controlling the exclamation points in this post, but I just can’t do it anymore. This is how I feel about all of this:

I should also add that the University of Delaware is giving us a pretty solid amount of funding as well. Gotta give my Blue Hens some due credit.
