What students said about the MakerMatic internships experience:
I really enjoyed the ideation portion because of all the wild solutions we thought of.
The last day went really well as my team presented our idea to the business leaders.We had so much fun during this program!
To see the final results of all our hard work was rewarding and to have actual feedback from a established company was also a great opportunity.
It was nice to see ourselves actually doing it! And not just imagining it.
