The Designathon is a student-led intensive design challenge for all Engineers Without Borders UK Chapters to take part in. Usually, Designathons or hackathon-style events are held within one day, but this year Chapters will be holding the event virtually throughout February 2021. During the month-long virtual event, participating teams will be presented with a brief and criteria to focus their design solutions on.

To support this event we have two volunteer opportunities available; a professional mentor and a judge. As a professional mentor, you’ll help the student teams to develop their ideas throughout February 2021. As a judge, you will be part of the panel which reviews the final designs. You have the chance to either participate in one or both of these opportunities.

Please fill in the form below if you are interested in taking part in this opportunity. If you are successful you will be provided with resources to support your role.
