"Hackathon + Making = Make-a-thon.
Life Changing Labs presents Cornell's second Make-a-thon, bringing together engineers, designers, and business students to hack and build to propose big solutions using rapid prototyping techniques. All making will be done in an open collaborative environment to incubate innovative ideas.
Engineers will be programming and tinkering with premade arduino base boards and various provided sensors.
Designers will be working with chipboard, paper, and foam to help create enclosures and armatures for the boards and their function.
Business minded students will be helping synthesize entire proposals to enure market fit, business model strategy, as well as assembling a pitch.
There will be a track for high school students and university students to participate in the event."
