Under the slogan “Light on the next level”, ITQ GmbH is organising the first Make Light Makeathon in cooperation with the Trade Fair Munich from 27 to 28 June 2017. In Hall B3 on stand 333 (B3.333), the company offers around 100 developers, engineers and inventers the opportunity to develop a product covering the topics of robotics, IoT and automation from idea to prototype within 24 hours. This challenge combines the real challenges of industry with the spirit to be innovative.
After a very successful Makeathon at the AUTOMATICA 2016, further cooperation partners such as Conrad Electronics and the VDI Technology Center were brought on board for the first Make Light Makeathon at the Laserworld of Photonics. Furthermore the Makeathon is also supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and is intended to focus on the technical training of younger generations, which is also confirmed by the Integration Islands (29 June 2017), where young people will make their experience with technology live.
