On September 8, 2011, Team New York hosted two events to celebrate its completion. The Media Tour (Press Event) and the Send-Off ceremony (Sponsor Event) were two largely successful celebrations of the beloved Solar Roofpod. Media swarmed the site, ready to interview students and receive house tours of the pod. Many remarks were made on the spacious interior spaces, the urban facade, and the interior innovations of the pod. The Sponsors Event was the team’s way of thanking the sponsors for their widespread efforts and support. They received house tours and were fascinated by the persistence and commitment of the team. They also recognized how much student involvement was a part of the project.
