Candy Cotton


The host of BC's first annual Designathon

What's a "designathon"?


/dəˈzīn əˌTHän/



A Designathon is like a hackathon but for "CAD"ing instead of coding.


It is an annual competition hosted by design leagues across universities. This competition provides opportunities for students to apply their knowledge for solving real-world problems given by industry partners—through design-thinking, Computer Aided Design (CAD), prototyping, 3D-printing, and teamwork. Winners of local Designathons are invited to an annual National Designathon hosted by the National Design League (NDL).
