Meet Ben | Make48 Team Member

Our team is growing and we'd like to introduce you to our newest community outreach team member.


We met Ben Randell back in 2019 through Operation Breakthrough, when they submitted a team for Season 4. In his newest role at Make48, Ben is reaching out to local communities, developing ideas, and engaging with educational institutions to bring Make48 events to their cities.


Can you tell me a little bit about yourself?

I'm the husband of a strong professional woman and father of two independent, creative young ladies. I have worked many jobs in science education from science centers and zoos, to public middle school and an after-school program at a community education center.


I have travelled all over the world and enjoy meeting people along the way. I play ukulele, grow veggies in my front yard, walk my dogs and dabble in improv theater. I recently accepted my middle age status by signing up for a Pickleball league.


What is your role at Make48?

I do community outreach in the cities we are hosting events which requires a lot of calling, emailing and texting to explain what Make48 is.
