Thanks for watching our video and supporting our cause! We put the video together in less than 3 days and had a lot of help and support from the SCI-Arc and Cal Tech Solar Decathlon team! Also thanks to the film crew who came out on Saturday (Ariana Malik, Joe McGill, Kevin Pender), and everyone who donated equipment (Brandon Lippard, Henrik Knudsen)! We couldn't have done it without you!
