Make-A-Thon is a two day marathon celebration of making. Participants will work in teams to create something wonderful. At the end of the marathon everyone will come together and show off what they have made. There will be prizes and celebration for all the collaboration and making that happen!
Make-A-Thon Makers will have the choice of competing in a wide open making category or in a specific challenge: electronics, paper craft, cooking, sewing, woodworking, 3d printing, casting, assemblage, you name it!
