Physics Unlimited is preparing to launch a new type of event for high school students worldwide, the makeathon (combination of a hackathon and designated maker space time).
This event aims to introduce students to necessary critical thinking and collaborative skills across physics and related STEM disciplines in a more applied domain, and students of all backgrounds are welcome.
We are exploring the feasibility of running both the online and onsite makeathons, and as part of this process are asking anyone who would like to be potentially involved in any role (hosts, volunteers, student participants, or judges) to fill out a brief questionnaire linked here.
We look forward to hearing about your plans and are excited about introducing this type of event to a broad range of students.
