Battlefield Nerds take on a Hurricane

After Hurricane Maria ravaged the U.S. Virgin Islands, the "Battlefield Nerds" of Building Momentum came to the rescue. These guys are bringing mobile maker labs into the field to help teach communities how they can recycle and upcycle materials to solve infrastructural issues threatening their survival...like rigging a recovered solar panel to provide energy for powering your phone, or a stove so you can cook a hot meal. 

They've issued a challenge to 8 critical problems facing the island, calling on other innovators to pitch in, think way outside of the box, and help these islands problem solve their way to recovery.  See the Fast Company feature story for more on these real-life heroes!
