STEAM Punks has been awarded the 2014 Michael Kalil Endowment for Smart Design. "The Michael Kalil Endowment for Smart Design was established in 2001 in memory of designer Michael Kalil at the School of Constructed Environments. The mission of the Endowment is twofold: to foster the understanding of the design intersections between nature and technology and to support a heightened sense of responsibility for increasing the sustainability of built environments." The funds from the award will be used to test the kits in the summer of 2014. To learn more about the Michael Kalil Endowment for Smart Design please visit the Parson's site.
