What IS Make48?
Make48 is a 48-hour competition where teams are given a challenge, must build a physical prototype, sales sheet and a 1-minute marketing video and then pitch it to judges. The twist is that we have tool technicians and access to a Makerspace full of equipment and tools to help the teams build almost anything their imaginations can come up with to solve the challenge. Collaboration is the key to success.
In real life everyone has big ideas, but only about 5% have the skills either physically or digitally to make a prototype. To build anything you need collaboration, often many different materials and various pieces of equipment to finish a product. Make48 allows this process to be achieved under a timed, fun, fast-moving and educational event!
