Ice Hockey Make-a-thon + Hedy Lamarr Achievement Award + Summer Intensive Program in Digital Media + Call for Submissions: The Art of the Remix

The world's first Ice Hockey Make-a-thon will be happening here at Carnegie Mellon, March 12th - 16th in CIT's MakerWing! Twenty-five CMU students will be selected to learn about sports safety from the Pittsburgh Penguins and about cutting edge materials from Covestro. Using these materials and resources in the MakerWing, students groups will develop solutions to the challenge of prototyping new ice hockey walls that still allow regular movement of the puck but reduce player injuries. The innovative solutions resulting from this event will be publicized locally, nationally, and internationally. For more information and to apply, go to and enter the password Rethink the Rink. Questions can go to Diana Haidar, CIT Makerspace Director.
