What is MakeX Spark?

MakeX Spark Online Competition is a project-based creative design program for young people aged 6 to 13. The participating team will need to focus on the specific theme and devise a solution through software programming and hardware construction. The solution will be a demonstration project and a poster with topics including research, design-thinking process, construction scheme, and outcome summary. 

With the characteristics of low entry-level and flexible forms, Spark focuses on guiding teenagers to not only learn interdisciplinary knowledge and apply them to practical problems but also improve their problem-solving and logical-thinking abilities, developing their creativity and imagination. 

THEME

In 2020, an outbreak of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) infection affected every aspect of our lives. Scientific institutions, governments and enterprises all over the world work closely together to quickly use scientific means, from studying the principle of the virus, tracking the spread of the virus and popularizing scientific knowledge of epidemic prevention, great efforts have been made to build a scientific defense line for the protection of human health.

The theme of 2021 MakeX Spark Online Competition-1st match is Code For Health. We hope that participants in Spark are able to contribute their own creative ideas to safeguard human health. There’s no limit to what you can do — you can build a touch-free robot to fight epidemics and deliver supplies to hospitals, develop intelligent tools that can destroy viruses and protect human health, or invent diagnostic tools to diagnose the health status of the human body or community at any time……. As long as your ideas are bold enough and have something to do with protecting human health, you are the safety guardian we are looking for!

Why Join MakeX Spark?

☆ Have all-round development

You will get a comprehensive development by using logical thinking and innovation to design solutions for a real-world problem and demonstrating it to others.

☆ A fun solution to distance learning

It gives you an opportunity to study at home and have great fun while creating and learning.

☆ Experience the joy of sharing

You are encouraged to showcase your project in the global community and share your experience in the online awarding ceremony!

☆ Attend basic Workshops

The training workshops or webinars organized by MakeX will be open to all participating teams, with a variety of interesting and practical topics.

What They Say?

“I was not so convinced that our students could be able to participate in the competition after 3 months of intensive training. And I thought competitions or winning is not that important to them, but I was wrong. When they need to design, construct, and present their work at the end of the project, they surprised me by their commitment and creativity.”

Laura Wu
Mentor from STEM@IT

“We had quite problems with organization, because of the pandemic. Older students don’t have classes in school so we had to collaborate online. There was no problem with theory and discussing ideas, but when we had to do the practice part, there were a bit of hiccup. Some of them managed, some didn’t. But idea and preparation will stay with them for some other competition with the similar theme”.

Zeljko Udovcic
Mentor at C.H.A.O.S.

“MakeX is a terrific teaching material for young students to develop coding creativity and experience. Make X which has much better quality than any others in the market makes students highly concentrate on their projects. The best point we learned is that coding education should be to stimulate students’ interest, not just cramming something to their brain.”
