About :

a. Introduction:The rise of Maker culture has led to the increase of maker hackathons throughout the world, including the Southeast Asian region. In line with Strategic Thrust 3: Innovation, of the ASEAN ICT Masterplan 2020 (AIM2020), the ASEAN Makerthon 2017 is one of the many initiatives by ASEAN to drive a vibrant and responsive ICT sector to encourage entrepreneurship and idea generation. The program is not only a competition but a platform to network, share and learn. To further encourage regional ICT growth, all 10 AMS have been invited to participate in the program, as well as ASEAN TELSOM’s dialogue partners. The ASEAN Makerthon 2017 will be a 3-day event during which, participants will be required to build physical prototypes in line with the theme, within a specific amount of time. The program will take place at the myMaker IoT Lab in the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Malaysia (MCMC) headquarters in Cyberjaya, Selangor. The lab comes equipped with equipment such as laser cutters, CNC machine, 3D printers, solder kits and some basic tools. Finalist teams from participating countries will be invited to Malaysia for the ASEAN Makerthon 2017 - Southeast Asia’s very first ASEAN-supported maker hackathon.
