We would like to give a big thanks to our sponsors! Interested in sponsoring our makeathon? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
CAD and Arduino workshops will bring participants up to speed with modeling softwares and electronics used in the product design process. With access to prototyping materials during the makeathon, participants will be encouraged to bring their own projects or participate in the general challenge. Teams will have the opportunity to pitch and demo their finished projects to fellow attendees and judges.
Break to Make aims to break down gender stereotypes in STEM and introduce maker culture and entrepreneurship, reshaping the language and culture at hackathon-like events. Creating an all-women event fosters a friendlier learning environment, eventually acting as a springboard for attendees to return as participants or mentors at our Spring Co-Ed Makeathon.
Keep your eyes peeled for our Break to Make 2018 application! They'll be released during the summer.
Whether it be leading a workshop or sending hardware for us to hack on, you are not restricted to a sponsorship level, and there are many other ways to support a makeathon besides monetary sponsorship. We would be happy to discuss ways that you can help Break to Make and ways that we can help you! If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail us at email@example.com.
