Make-A-Thon is an event where students, designers and hackers collaborate for limited time to deliver solutions to various challenges proposed by industries and need-knowers.
Event kick-starts with challenges being proposed to participants, for which they have to come up with an innovative solution and develop a prototype within 36 hours. Solutions can be based on hardware projects and software projects and are refined based on feedback from need-knowers. Event concludes with judging and prize distribution.
How does it work?
You will work in teams of 3-5 person to make anything that fits according to the problem statement you have chosen. A prompt will be released around two weeks before the event to guide all projects.
