T-Mobile, the nation’s 5G leader, will serve as Co-Challenge Sponsor at Make48’s national competition this spring. T-Mobile will bring in the power of 5G and help craft the teams’ competition objective for the sixth season of Make48.
Showcasing the power of innovation, T-Mobile will work with Make48, the fastest invention competition, and an additional product company, to help participants bring their prototypes to life. The Un-carrier will provide tools and mentors to support the teams as they create a working prototype and will be featured on the nationwide competition series.
Make48 Co-creator and CEO Tom Gray said “For the first time in our competitions, teams will get challenged to incorporate a tech element of connectivity with their prototype ideation and fabrication. As tech is part of most people's lives, I don’t think this will limit the creativity of the teams and may enhance their creations.”
