The U.S. Department of Energy has given us this opportunity to show the world how we can advance affordable and sustainable housing, but we cannot do it without your support! We have task of raising over $500,000 to make this once in a lifetime possibility a reality. Your contribution will not only advance public higher education and alternative energy solutions, it will give us the chance to enlighten masses that will enter our home and leave knowing that change is possible.

In addition to web and media exposure, another exciting opportunity for sponsors of Team Massachusetts has become available. Thanks to the City of Boston, the team will be constructing, testing, and exhibiting the 4D Home in the Marine Industrial park in Boston's Innovation District this summer. All sponsors of Team Massachusetts will have the opportunity for signage at the Boston Build Site, gaining exposure not only to energy industry professionals, educators and students from all over New England, and also the many tourists coming from the nearby cruise terminal.
