2016 – Designing for the Body

This past April the CU Community Fab Lab partnered with the registered student organization Makers UIUC and Makerspace Urbana to host the 2nd annual makeathon, CU Make!

The event was attended by over 100 local and regional participants (parents, kids, UI students), included 10 workshops and featured two competitive tracks for beginners and experts with prizes.

This year’s prompt was Designing for the Body and featured many projects related to e-textiles and wearables.

Makers UIUC was recently honored with the 2015-2016 Campus Award for Excellence in Public Engagement for cross-campus collaborative programming!
