What is MakeX Spark?
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.”
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.”
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.”
What You Can Get?
Contestants are evaluated on five dimensions of performance.
* Include creative thinking,electronic technology,programming ability,design ability and communication skills.
Each dimension is made up of 1-2 subdimensions

Previous Excellent Projects
Ambulance and Traffic
During my research on my MakeX project topic, I found some scary and interesting information:
-2020 Pandemic situation has taught us some very important lessons, that we must not ignore to ensure that such a crisis will not occur again.
We saw that first-world to third-world countries faced the same problem as they were not prepared.
Care Consol is a device to motivate users into a more beneficial and healthier diet routine. When dieting, it is very easy falling off track and participating in dangerous diet plans. However, this device will always be there to back down into the right path whenever you need it.
There are certain things in life which you have to do whether you like it or not. One of such things is household chores which all moms can’t avoid. We decide to create an auto cleaner robot as a helper. It is a sustainable auto cleaner. It can sweep and mop the floors at the same time . It is user friendly because all of the members in the family can control it. This helper will make all moms around the world will smile broadly.
Healthcare is a global problem, countries big or small face this issue of providing ideal healthcare countrywide hence with the theme of coding with health in this makex competition I propose a solution to providing Elderly healthcare through technology.
