Make for the Planet Borneo is co-located with IMCC5 at the Waterfront Hotel to engage students and practitioners from multiple fields – engineering, design, do-it-yourself making, computer programming, science and technology, etc. – to create solutions for five specific marine conservation challenges to be presented at IMCC5. Teams will have access to a pop-up makerspace with prototyping equipment, including 3D printers and electronics stations, and access to the IMCC5 presentations. Mentors from the IMCC5 delegation and local organizations will be on-hand to help guide the multidisciplinary teams. Teams will win prizes!
