Physics Unlimited: Makeathons
Physics Unlimited is preparing to launch a new type of event for high school students worldwide, the makeathon (combination of a hackathon and designated maker space time). This event aims to introduce students to necessary critical thinking and collaborative skills across the physics and related STEM disciplines in a more applied domain, and students of all backgrounds are welcome.
We are exploring the feasibility of organizing both the online and onsite makeathons, and as part of this process are asking anyone who would like to be potentially involved in *any* role (hosts, volunteers, student participants, or judges) to fill out this brief questionnaire.
We look forward to hearing about your plans and are excited about introducing this type of event to a broad range of students.

Interest in online or onsite makeathons?
Online makethons would make use of equipment students already have and provide them with a longer-term assignment of the order of weeks, such as to build a physical setup, app, or prototype. Onsite makeathons would make use of space at host sites per agreements with relevant parties (educational institutions, companies) and would last for up to one day. Please select which type(s) of makethon you would like to be involved in; you may select both.
Please provide your location
For online makeathon, country and region/state is sufficient. For onsite makeathon, please specify the exact city and/or institution where such event may take place.
Which role(s) are you interested in?
Host (providing or being a liaison to a host site) [onsite type only]
Judge (judging student work/projects)
Content creator (help design the task and directions for a particular makeathon)
Briefly explain why you are interested in this role, what prior relevant experience you have, and what you would take away from this opportunity. Thanks!
