UNC’s week-long Makeathon is a creative, cross-campus competition which accelerates innovative ideas into physical and digital prototypes that promote positive social impact. Students will form academically diverse teams of 3-5 members who will compete in one of two tracks: digital or physical product development.

They will have special access to on-campus makerspaces, app labs, workshops, and expert mentors to design, reiterate, and enhance their products, business models, and pitches. In addition to their prototypes, students will also build a network of peers and community members who are skilled in innovating, making, and entrepreneurship, which will extend beyond the competition.

The Makeathon culminates in a final pitch event where students and other expert judges will be invited to vote to give the teams the chance to win over $10,000 in cash and other prizes and opportunities.
