Rules and Parameters

  • The 12 teams will each consist of 4-5 people, with at least 2 underclassmen (freshman/sophomore) and at least 2 upperclassmen (junior/senior). You may register as a complete team, or with an unfinished team and we will complete your team for you, and you may also sign up as an individual and we will place you on a team.

  • No outside materials may be used on the device for the fairness of all the participants (ex: don’t bring your own LEDs or power tools that you intend to use on your device).

  • Bring laptops with Solidworks, AutoCad or whichever CAD software the team is comfortable with installed. CAD licenses will NOT be provided

  • The design prompt will be released 14 hours before the Makeathon so that teams have time to brainstorm before the event.  Any attempt to access the prompt before then will disqualify a team.

  • While contact with professionals and scientists at the event is highly encouraged, contacting professionals outside of the event for design ideas and help will disqualify a team.
