Golden, Colo. (Sept. 27, 2017) – Epilog Laser is excited to join as a sponsor for the highly anticipated Season 2 of Make48. In this 48-hour invent-a-thon 12 teams from 12 states will plan, prototype and pitch a new idea within the specifications of a challenge, which is revealed at the start of the 48 hours. The second installment begins filming September 28 at the Kansas City Art Institute.
“As long-time supporters of the maker movement, we’re thrilled to sign on as sponsors of the second season of Make48,” said Mike Dean, vice president of sales and marketing for Epilog Laser. “It’s always such an exciting event and we love seeing how contestants use the lasers to create their prototypes!”
Make48 has coordinated several events since 2015. In October 2016, the entire process was filmed to create an 8-part documentary television series that shows the contestant experience from product conception to taking it to market. This season is currently airing on public television stations around the country.
The goal of Make48 is to foster imagination, creativity, problem solving and the inventive spirit. Make48 captures the process of invention through a hands-on competition that challenges individuals of various ages and backgrounds to take product ideas from conception to physical prototype in a 48-hour period.
At the end of 48 hours the teams will pitch their idea to a panel of judges.
Based on the competition criteria, three top inventions will be chosen.
Make48 will then follow these products as they make their way to market.
