HEALTH TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION?
You've probably heard of a Hackathon. Well, the Rothberg Catalyzer at Penn is a MakerThon. Instead of the classic Hackathon focus on software, a MakerThon is where students compete to build innovative hardware solutions for healthcare problems!
During this immersive two-day event, cross-disciplinary student teams collaborate on a simple prototyping project to be presented to a panel of judges by the end of the weekend. Clinicians, Engineers, Healthcare Entrepreneurs, etc. will serve as judges and mentors.
Ideate, iterate, and innovate with your team to take an idea from concept to creation.
