The designathon is a student led intensive design challenge for all Engineers Without Borders UK Chapters to take part in. Usually designathons or hackathons are held within one day. During the event, participating teams are presented with a brief and criteria to focus their designs on. Teams will be asked to create a suitable design using the information provided.

As a professional mentor, you’ll help the student teams develop their ideas on the day. You can also be involved with judging the finished designs! You will be provided guidance which includes the design brief and marking criteria.
