First annual Build it Better NJ State Championship 2017

Build it Better LogoMacEwan Consulting was proud to serve as a lead organizer of the first annual Build it Better New Jersey State Championship 2017. The competition was held at Mercer County College on June 2, and welcomed six high school teams that advanced from earlier competitions at their respective schools.

The challenge (a MacEwan original) presented to the students was to create a device that would dunk cookies into milk. Students weren’t given any information about their task until the start of the competition. Limited, basic supplies were provided and students were given 3 hours to design and build their device.

See the event press release. The Build it Better design challenge is an event of ManufactureNJ’s Dream it. Do it. Program.
