What is a Makeathon?
A Makeathon is an educational event in which several teams develop a technological prototype during a short period of time.
Makeathon comes from MAKE+marATHON and it is a live-event where participants, spend various days creating, developing, designing, and pitching a software or hardware project they build from scratch. We provide all the resources and mentorship you need in order to make this happen!
Am I eligible to participate?
Any high school students, university students, or recent graduates are eligible to participate in our event!
Do I need to know how to code?
Nope! Our mentors make sure that even if you’re new to coding, you’ll definitely pick up enough skills at the event to make a project. In addition, if you’re a designer or business student, your design and pitching skills are also very valuable!
Can I sign up with a team?
We allow team sign ups. All team members must sign up individually and you can specify team members on your application.
What if I don’t have a team or idea?
No worries, all participants will have time to find a team during the event, and we will also have team formation activities during our event.
How much does it cost to attend?
The participation on the Makeathon itself is free of charge! However, and since the number of places for the event is limited, responsibility is required when registering.
Registration includes transport (bus route will be scheduled), accommodation and full-board during the whole duration of the event, at the hostel where the Makeathon takes place.
If you will not be able to attend, you must cancel your registration in order to release that place for other people.
In the case of not attending the event without previously canceling, you will not be allowed to attend any of the future events convened by this Organization.
