Meet The Teams | The Make48 Showdown at The Delta School

In the heart of Wilson, Arkansas, The Delta School stands as a beacon of innovation and progress. This educational haven is not just a few buildings; it's a nurturing ground for the minds of tomorrow.


This weekend The Delta School will open its doors to host the much-anticipated Make48 competition. Seven teams, each representing a local high school, eagerly await to hear the challenge from E-Z-GO, a pioneer in the realm of golf cart solutions. 


These young innovators are ready to showcase their talents on a platform that celebrates innovation. By providing students with opportunities to engage in real-world problem-solving, the school is not just shaping young minds but also making a tangible impact on its community.


So, without further ado, let's meet the teams who will embark on this exhilarating journey of creativity, determination, and boundless potential. Get ready to witness the magic unfold as these young visionaries step onto the stage.
