Get involved in Baruch’s premier creativity and design competition

Lagging subways, traffic, overcrowding, pollution – what if you could solve some of NYC’s biggest problems? Now is your chance to design and prototype creative solutions to issues that matter to you.


The MakerHub is launching the Learn| Make| Play Challenge 2017, Baruch’s premier creativity and design competition. We encourage you to explore our makerspace and use technology as well as arts & crafts to think of innovative solutions to problems that affect many people today – just like an entrepreneur.
