Event: MAKEMIT February 22-23, 2020

For Those of You About to Make – We Salute You


MAKEMIT is an engineering makeathon that brings together over 250 students who are passionate about designing and building. Across 18+ hours, groups of makers work together to develop an idea and materialize it through the engineering design process. The event begins at 7 AM on Saturday Feb. 22 and ends at 12:30 PM On Sunday Feb. 23.

Cypress is sponsoring this event by donating PSoC 4 BLE and PSoC 5 development kits. We are sharing resources in the community to help attendees prepare and to engage our other community members. Participation in the event is open to all undergraduate students. Complete details are available on the MAKEMIT website .

We have created a thread on the Cypress community  “Event: MakeMIT 2020 Q and A”  ( This thread will be monitored by Cypress technical volunteers 8:30 AM to 11:59 PM Feb. 22 and 7:00 AM until 10:00 AM Feb. 23 2020 (EST).
