Announcing the Yahoo! Boost Awards!

Yahoo! has generously granted the GROCS program an additional $1500. The Yahoo! Boost Awards will be distributed at the end of the GROCS winter semester to teams that can use it to continue their work, with priority given to uses that particularly further a collaborative component — especially if it is across GROCS teams.

Congratulations and Thank You!

A big hearty thank you to everyone who came out to support the 2009 GROCS teams at their Galery show. We had a great, engaging crowd on Friday for the opening and a steady stream of visitors throughout the week.

And an equally hearty congrulations to all of the teams! It is no small feat to bring a project from proposal to exhibition in less than a semester, and the fact that each of our six teams can come together and each present their work is amazing.

Thanks again and look for more posts documenting the “wraps” in further detail to come!
