Here are some highlights from this year's City Events
We can't wait to be at UMKC's Innovation Studio filming for Season 6!
Make48 is a 48-hour competition where teams are given a challenge for which they build a physical prototype, create a sales sheet, and produce a 1-minute marketing video, all to pitch in front of industry-leading judges. The twist is that we have tool technicians and access to a space full of equipment and tools, all to help the teams build almost anything their imaginations can come up with to solve the challenge. To come out on top, collaboration is the key to success. The team that claims first prize will win $10,000, and the trophy & bragging rights for the year.
Everyone has big ideas, but few have the skills physically or digitally to make a prototype. You need collaboration, often many different materials, and various pieces of equipment to finish a product. Make48 allows this process to be achieved in a timed, fun, fast-moving, and educational event!
The Innovation Studio supports its mission through state-of-the-art prototyping,
technology, and training. The Innovation Studio plays a unique role in University-Business
partnerships by providing the best opportunities for supporting product innovation, while
also enhancing the integration of engineering, business, product design, and technology
within the UMKC community.
