Why a makeathon?

UNC entrepreneurship is thriving. Multiple makerspaces call UNC home. The AppLab promises to bring digital development into the 21st century. Social impact fuels conversations across campus. In response, The Makeathon aims to provide a cross-campus platform for innovative makers to meet, learn, and showcase their creations!

What will happen?

The Makeathon will start with team formation and design thinking workshops in January. Makeathon week will be packed with specialty skill workshops and mentor office hours, and will culminate in a “Shark-Tank-esque” competition where students will pitch their prototypes before a panel of judges. See schedule info below!
