What is MakeX Spark?

MakeX Spark is an innovation competition program for young people aged 6-13. In 2021, it reached more than 60 cities in 25 countries around the world, covering 450 schools and involving 1500 students.
The competition includes online and onsite event formats. Contestants are encouraged to use a variety of materials to design and build their projects. Through project-based learning, contestants boost their imagination and creativity, and combined with critical thinking and research of a real-world issue, contestants are improving their cross-disciplinary problem-solving skills. Also, the contestants’ skills in expression, collaboration, and cooperation can be enhanced through project demonstration.

Low-carbon Life

2022.05-2022.06

The theme of the first match is “Low-carbon Life” . Contestants should create relevant creative projects by using hardware and programming around this theme.
Low-carbon Life calls for reducing energy consumption, especially carbon dioxide emissions, so as to reduce air pollution and slow down ecological deterioration. We are encouraged to change our lifestyle from three aspects: electricity saving, gas saving and recycling. Low-carbon Life is not only a lifestyle, but also an environmental responsibility for sustainable development. Share your ideas and create a Low-carbon Life with everyone!

Why Join MakeX Spark?

     Project-based creative design program

Unlike most robotics or coding competition, it also requires creativity, design-thinking and presentation, working as a complete project circle.

     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!

     Compete virtually and submit online

You are free to complete your project anywhere and submit it online.

     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. MakeX 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.”
