Makers’ Showcase is a family-friendly, carnival-like event that allows students to build games and connect with the greater UH community. The event had food, games, fun, and prizes made from the projects of our makers.
Student organizations and companies will have a chance to interact with students through hands on projects and activities. Our hope was that this event will spark some friendly competition between student organizations encouraging active involvement by their members.
This outreach was a very successful event, with about 200-300 attendees including students, professors, sponsors, collaborators and many more external guests. We had a huge support from the ECE department with the College of Technology, Mouser and Maxim Integrated. We really enjoyed working for this event, and that is why we are planning to bring this back during the spring semester at the Chili Cook-Off.
