Makeathon 2016: No Limits
January 29-31, 2016 - Stamps School of Art and Design
Makeathon is a 36 hour design competition that aims to pull the most passionate artists, designers and creators for a weekend full of creativity and innovative breakthrough. Innovation will be put on full display through three different forms of competition: Product Design Competition, Fine Arts Showcase and Case Competition.
Product Design Competition
A staple of Makeathon, the original design competition enables participants to transform their ideas into functioning prototypes for the chance to bring their product to market.
Build prototypes to solutions in 3 categories: Environment & Energy, Health & Wellness, and “Around the House”.
Fine Arts Showcase
New to Makeathon this year, the Fine Arts Showcase caters to those individuals who want to be apart of the Makeathon experience but in a way that allows them to display their artistic abilities through painting, drawing or any other medium that they choose to showcase their creativity.
Using the tools provided, how can you express power? It could be the power within yourself, the power electrical plugs have, the power your community has, the power your representatives have, the power of words, the power of art. How does Power represent you? "Power" asks you to comment on the 'charge' that drives you and all that surrounds.
Also new to Makeathon this year, the case competition will give teams the opportunity to tackle a real world problem, build a prototype, and present their solution to and be scored by a judging panel.
Case competition sponsored by National Instruments, centered around robotics, art, and design, and can be accessed here
Registration for this segment is now closed.
