The maker culture is a contemporary culture representing a technology-based extension of DIY culture. It often involves the application of engineering, programming, electronics and even robotics.
A Makeathon is an event, typically lasting several days, in which a large number of people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming and to make possible prototypes to solve an issue or problem.
Riding on the success of 2013 Hackathon@SST, SST is proud to announce 2014 Makeathon@SST, a 2-day-1-night National Coding Competition. Makeathon@SST aims to bring the brightest young minds in Singapore together to turn their ideas into enterprising physical products.
Leading up to the main event is a compulsory full day training workshop on 3rd June, which aims to equip participants with basic knowledge and skills required for the competition. 2014 Makeathon@SST is the first Makeathon Competition in Singapore that reaches out to primary and secondary school students nationwide.
After registration, a detail registration will be emailed to the teacher in-charge.
*SST reserves the right to limit the number teams to a maximum of 2 per school due to venue constraints. Each team must comprise a minimum of 3 students and 1 teacher; or a maximum of 5 students and 2 teachers.
