Make48 is Back @ The Kansas City Art Institute June 15-17

February 1, 2017


Make48 is back for another exhilarating live event this June 15-17 at the Kansas City Art Institute
We are beyond excited to finally announce the dates for our second 48 hour invent-a-thon at this venue
(just in case you missed it, it’s June 15-17. We really want you to know that). 

12 teams from 12 states will have 48 hours to plan, prototype, and pitch a new product idea within the
event’s secret category (which will be revealed at the start of the 48 hours). The 3 winning teams
will get expert design & marketing support and  Make48 will take their product to market

The first Make48 @ KCAI event took place last October, 2016 (read the event recap here). It was a
thrilling 48 hours that ended with 3 amazing winning products. We can’t wait for you to discover
what the winning  products were on the television series airing this summer!




One of our favorite things about getting to work with the Kansas City Art Institute again is that we will get
to enjoy the David T. Beals III Studio for Arts & Technology once again. Believe us- this place is an
inventor’s heaven: there are 3D printers, CNC machines, and Laser engraving and cutting machines galore.

A perfect setting for 3 teams to have a eureka moment that leads them to creating the next big thing in
product design. AND we get to do it in one of Kansas City’s hubs for innovation and technology. Stay tuned, friends!
