What is a Designathon?

Branstorm, Design, Build

Designathons are competitions envisioned for post-secondary students to tackle real-world challenges in mechanical and industrial design. Participants generate solutions, build prototypes, and present to industry professionals - all in the course of 36 hours. Founded in 2017, Designathons have rapidly spread across Ontario universities and attract employers looking for passionate young innovators.
