Field Ready Makeathon

Field Ready, a start-up focused on solving humanitarian supply chain problems through innovative manufacturing approaches such as 3D printing, is hosting a Makeathon at the Institute for Manufacturing, Cambridge on the afternoon of 14th May.

Makeathons are events of intense brainstorming and prototyping aimed at solving a particular technical challenge. The process involves coming up with theoretical solutions, taking a few of them forwards to proof of concept prototyping and sharing findings, with the hope that one or more of these will serve as basis for future development.

The theme of this Makeathon is construction quality in Haiti; participants will be given the challenge of identifying ways of testing the quality of concrete blocks on the site of delivery to ensure safe construction.
