DR. STETTER ITQ ANNOUNCING FEBRUARY MAKEATHON

DR. STETTER ITQ FEBRUARY 2017 MAKEATHON

As part of Dr. Stetter ITQ commitment with education and new technologies for Industry 4.0, and considering the big success of our previous “Smart Green Island Makeathon” held in Gran Canaria, we are proud to announce our next major event: February 2017 Makeathon. This time, we have decided to do things a little bit differently. Thus, we will be holding different workshops during the whole event. Some of this workshops are conceived as an introduction to the Makeathon itself, such as the Robotics Workshop, where participants will learn tons of cool stuff for their projects, whereas others are more oriented to current industry professionals.

We would like you to come and experience our next Makeathon. Professionals and students from all disciplines & all semesters are invited!

¿QUÉ ES UN MAKEATHON?

Hackathon + Making/Prototyping = Makeathon

Un Makeathon es un evento donde ingenieros y programadores jóvenes se unen durante varios días con el objetivo de ser creativos y desarrollar nuevas ideas y prototipos. Todo gira en torno a la conexión entre el mundo real y el digital, pues el unir elementos físicos con tecnología web y digital supone un reto nuevo e interesante. Se basa en la pasión por la tecnología y las ganas de divertirse junto a una comunidad joven y creativa.

The challenge:

How can digital technology and connected devices help to build a smart and green island

What is a Makeathon?

Hackathon + Making/Prototyping = Makeathon

A makeathon is an Event, where young programmers and engineers stick together for a few days to be creative and develop new ideas and prototypes together. Especially the connection between the digital and the real world causes new interesting challenges because you build and construct physical prototypes and combine them with digital and web technology. Also is about passion for technology and having fun within a young and creative community.

Questions?

Can I attend only to the presentation?

Yes! In case you sadly cannot attend the event as a participant, we are happy to invite you to the final presentations on 30.09. – 14:00 @ Escuela Informatica

If I cannot attend every day, can I register for the Makeathon and be a part of a team?

Yes, you can take part in the Event without attending all the time. We don’t want you to skip university due to the Makeathon.
Within the registration form, you can tell us the days/times you can attend in the “I want to add something”-section.

I don't have any concrete idea about the proposed topic, can I take part?

Yes! During the first phase of the Makeathon, we will do some brainstorming to find ideas for your prototypes. If you don’t have any idea, we can help you there.

I am a first year student, can I participate?

Yes you can! 😉

Is it necessary to have a team for participating?

No, you don’t need a team. Most of the people register without a team. The first day we will create teams with the participiants, also regarding their availability during those days.

I speak very little English, can I register?

The Makeathon is an international Event, so most of the presentations will be in english language. To work in a team though, you will probably get along with some basic english, especially since you will have other spanish students to help you.

What background knowledge is necessary?

First of all: Motivation & Self-suficient work – if you have that, you can learn everything you need.
Apart from that, skills of all disciplines, such as MATLAB, CAD, C++/C#, Simulation, Construction or manual or soft skills, such as soldering and a good team work are useful.
Don’t be afraid of any lack of skills, we are doing this event to learn from each other.

Will I earn university credit or some certificate for participating? Will there be an attendance register of the enrolled students?

The Makeathon is a private and free time event in cooperacion with the university. Therefore there will be no attendance registration and we are not able to offer credits. If you like, we are happy to give you an attendance certificate, after attending the event.

I have subjects of different courses, which semester should I choose in the registration form?

Take the highest one.

Is it necessary to bring any device or hardware?

You should bring your laptop if possible. We will provide Materials, such as Arduinos, Raspberry Pis, robots, 3D Printer, Electric Car and many more. Apart from that, feel free to bring additional hardware if you have something special in mind, but it is not nececarry.

Who's organizing the Event?

We are a mixed student team from Germany and Spain in collaboration with multiple companies and unisversities – the Event is “from students – for students”.
If you have any questions left, don’t hesitate to leave a comment or write a short informal message to Jonas: jfischer@itq.de

All students were in a very motivated mood, even though facing new challenges related to unfamiliar topics in a foreign language and a unknown team.

At the end, the students, as well as the professors from the EII University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, were proud of the nice and creative results.
