Event description

Description

Hosted by the Faculty of Engineering, The Maker Games is a rapid prototyping competition open to all UNSW undergraduate students. The competition is based on the best and brightest students coming up with solutions to wicked industry challenges. Students may pitch ideas individually however, teams of 4 - 6 will form around the best ideas to build a physical, working prototype. The prize is a trip to Silicon Valley for the winning team!
