Here are some highlights from this year's events

We are thrilled to be back at GoCreate, the areas premier makerspace filming for Season 5 on PBS!

Make48 is a 48-hour competition where teams are given a challenge, must build a physical prototype, sales sheet, and a 1-minute marketing video, and then pitch it to judges. The twist is that we have tool technicians and access to a Makerspace full of equipment and tools to help the teams build almost anything their imaginations can come up with to solve the challenge.  Collaboration is the key to success. We've taken the top 2 teams from each of our 2021 events who will compete to win $10000 and the bragging rights for the year.

In real life, everyone has big ideas, but only about 5% have the skills either physically or digitally to make a prototype. To build anything you need collaboration, often many different materials and various pieces of equipment to finish a product. Make48 allows this process to be achieved under a timed, fun, fast-moving, and educational event!

 

GoCreate, A Koch Collaborative is an 18,000 sq. ft. creative community makerspace open to all ages and experiences – artists and engineers alike. GoCreate features textiles, woodworking and metals studios with sophisticated, expert training and a supportive community to help make prototypes, projects and dreams come true. 

Event Date: March 25-27, 2022
