The Make48 Challenge
This season 10 teams were given a challenge with only 48 hours to complete at the famed Union Station – Science City in Kansas City.
Youtube stars Jimmy DiResta and Xyla Foxlin cohosted the event throughout the weekend. On hand were industry mentors, Josh Malone and Warren Tuttle, tool techs and experts to give support. At the end of the 48 hours, teams took to the stage and pitched their idea to an audience and a panel of judges with one team winning $10k!
Filming season 4 occurred just prior to the COVID-19 shutdown.
