A MAKEATHON is a very innovative happening: the name is a merge of the words “make” and “marathon”.
It is an event where different teams build awesome products or projects from scratch in a 30 hours—projects that are soft- or hardware oriented.
Come by and visit the event at kick-off, during the MAKING and of course the final presentations! On June 26, all projects will be presented for the audience.
