Host Make48 at your college and recruit the best!
Make48 is a 48-hour competition where teams are presented with a challenge and tasked to build a physical prototype, create a sales sheet, produce a 1-minute marketing video and pitch their idea to a panel of judges. Participants are supported by a team of tool technicians in a Makerspace full of equipment and tools to help them build nearly any solution their imaginations can conceive.
Collaboration is the key to success.
In real life, everyone has big ideas, but only about 5% have the skills either physically or digitally to make a prototype. To build complex solutions you need collaboration, often many different materials and various pieces of equipment to finish a product. Make48 accelerates the process in a fun, fast-moving, and educational event!
