What will we make? That’s where you come in! Work with your colleagues, your teams and your patients to generate ideas that provide 3-D printable solutions to existing medical issues.
Some things to keep in mind while you create:
- Who are you designing for?
- What is the need you are designing for?
- Why are those needs not being currently met?
- Why is 3D printing a better solution than the traditional alternatives?
Your idea will be featured as one of the problems our Makers could solve during Resident Awareness Week.
The winning designs from the Make-a-thon will become part of a catalogue of crowd-sourced, free designs being used to benefit humanity across the globe and even into Space! The winning designs of our Make-a-Thon will have the opportunity to be printed at the Mars Desert Research Centre.
Be a part of a global community making a difference right now. Submit your design ideas in the comments section of this post to be considered. The FIVE programs who submit the best ideas will each receive $500 in additional Plan Your Own Social funding!
