Things to See

Come celebrate over 35 projects made by students, including Elon Kickbox and Maker Hub Consultants projects! Our Kickboxers are making 13 amazing projects that range from a robot cat to devices for children with disabilities to gain more independence. These makers are taking their passions, skills they’ve learned in the classroom, and a maker mindset to create things that are innovative, helpful or sustainable. See their projects in action at the Maker Takeover!

Learn more about each 2022 Elon Kickboxer and see photos and videos about their progress in their digital story.

There will also be a number of other projects made by various individuals from the Elon community that showcase all the ways our tools and resources can be used! So come take a look at all the great work being done and grab some inspiration for your own projects in the Moseley Student Center.
