So what did we learn?

Makeathons are a great way to learn new ideas, prototype solutions to grand challenges, create new things, work with people you might not otherwise have encountered, and develop new skills.

To make them work, it's important to plan them well, design the activities, work with the participants closely and get them to take on roles and responsibilities within the group to keep on track, keep it fun and help everyone reach the best possible result.

What follows are the key takeaways and some further reading that will give you a much deeper insight into how and why to run a Makeathon.

Good luck!
