The Hardware Designathon is a 48-hour event where students come together to share ideas, form teams, build products and launch startups, while receiving training and mentorship from practising industry experts.

The unique aspect of this event is giving participants the opportunity to engage with a wide variety of cutting-edge prototyping technologies to be able to develop physical products with the short 48-hour time frame as well as being exposed to experts in design, mechatronics, business, marketing, etc.

The event will kick off with an icebreaker session followed by a pitching session, a popular voting session and a team creation session, all of which will take place on a Saturday morning. The assembled teams will then have until Sunday afternoon to research, validate and prototype their ideas before pitching them in front of a panel of expert judges. During the weekend, a range of mentors will be available providing ongoing advice and assistance to the different participating teams. Following the final pitches, awards and prizes will be given to the best teams.

This is a great opportunity to experience working in newly formed team, increase communication skills, quickly develop ideas and business propositions. The event is an immersive experience incorporating aspects of entrepreneurship, marketing, engineering, design and information technology and mimics the stages of developing a real-life startup and its product.


This startup weekend will be organised By Arc Hardware Incubator in partnership with the Gateway to Industry Schools Program for Manufacturing & Engineering and Gateway to Industry Schools Hub for agricultural Manufacturing & engineering based at Dalby State High School.
