Maker’s Design Competition
The Maker’s Design Competition gives all students the opportunity to design, develop, and implement projects of their own conception, offering cash prizes. The competition is open to students from all majors and encourages a variety of majors to enter. The competition does require that all entries be of teams (2-5 people is suggested). It is free to enter the competition.
The goal of the Maker’s Design Competition is to connect a variety of majors encouraging students to coordinate their strengths on a multidisciplinary team, to challenge students to think creatively and reach beyond their sphere of knowledge, and to gain hands-on experience troubleshooting the issues that arise fromthe difference between the ideal models used for design and the reality of implementation. The Maker’s Design Competition seeks to encourage students to work on multidisciplinary teams and to gain an appreciation for the skills and talents of their teammates.
