WHAT IS A MAKEATHON?
The “MAKEATHON“ is one of ITQs Education 4.0 concepts which is an innovative educational event in which several teams (also from different fields of studies) create and develop technological prototypes as well as innovative solutions during a short period of time. The challenges or problems could be provided whether by the sponsoring companies or within the participating teams.
The name “MAKEATHON” comes from the combination to “MAKE” and “MARATHON”. It is a special live-event where participants spend several days creating, hacking, developing, designing, and pitching a software or hardware project they have built from scratch.
THE MAIN GOAL OF SMART GREEN TUNISIA
Besides the challenges the MAKEATHON provide an open innovation space and a network community where Tunisian as well as international companies can meet with local and international students to present their ideas and prototypes as well as to share their expertise and experience.
