MaKeathon at Northwestern – Calling all Need Knowers!

Join us for a three-day Makeathon on April 28th-30th at the new Northwestern Kellogg Global Hub! You’ll be paired with makers in one of Northwestern's most exciting and innovative spaces for the experience of a lifetime.

The MaKeathon at Northwestern brings Makers (engineers, designers, innovators and problem solvers) together with Need Knowers (people with a deep understanding of a specific disability challenge, either due to personal life experience or professional choices) to develop extremely affordable solutions for real-life challenges. The products will be designed and built in a 3-day marathon.

Are you a Need Knower with a disability that you would like the maker teams to build a solution to? Check out the attached handout and apply below!
