Step 1: Choose Your Path
Select which challenge category you want to create an invention for. Multiple entries encouraged! Can’t decide? Close your eyes and use the Force. Category winners each get a Kit & special swag! Multiple entries encouraged!

Step 4: Share Your Masterpiece

DEADLINE IS December 19 at midnight EST.

Step 5: Join the Global Makeathon
Make alone you need not. From December 11-13, join a Global Makeathon event at Chapters in over 100 cities, from NYC to Beijing and across the DagoBit System. Or host your own 🙂 We’ve compiled a Resource Guide to help you navigate this workshop like the Millennium Falcon in an astroid field.

May the bits be with you.
