The fastest invention-competition is returning to the Indianapolis metropolitan area to host an event at Fishers Maker Playground!
From September 10-12, Make48 will unlock the tools needed to build with brand new teams this participating this year. Participants from all backgrounds, ages and skill levels that are interested in innovation and invention, will create under the challenge theme Food Preservation & The Supply Chain - Food at the Right Place at the Right Time. The challenge was determined by the United Way of Central Indiana and the event is sponsored by Corteva Agriscience.
Meet the teams who will compete in the 48-hour challenge. One winning team will walk away with $2,000 and advance to the National Finale, which will be filmed for Season 6 of Make48 on PBS next March.
Meet Jeff, Eduardo, Jack and Ayanna! They are the Fishers Tigers and their teams consist of two teachers and two students. They have been friends with the makerspace, Fishers Maker Playground, and are ready to start building.
Last year Make48 worked with Machyne Makerspace and this time around, they're giving the competition a try! Paul, Ramon, Roman and Nick are artists and engineers affiliated with Machyne Makerspace. We're glad to see them try their hand at the challenge!
