“At Makeweekend, people stop the complaining and start making the solutions. It’s about making the world a better place.” -Tasnim Hadi
Makeweekend aims to inspire people from different backgrounds to create, invent and get involved in science and technology. We do this through our workshops and make-a-thons.
1-day intense and interactive design thinking training for university students. The purpose of the workshops is to get students to experience and learn the design thinking process. The timeline below represents the learning process that students go through.
A 2-day intensive programme to create complete or semi-complete products ready to be taken forward. The timeline below represents the making process that participants go through, with guidance from relevant industry mentors.
Themes include: Robotics, Music, Urban Design, Disaster Preparedness, Gaming and Social Innovation.
Pass the experience to your peers by signing up to be a Makeweekend Student Ambassador, and help bring Makeweekend to your institution.
