Presentation of the event

The development of a country is based on its technology. Only the level of technology can allow a nation to leap into the future. It is in the same vision that yanfoma decided to promote technological innovation by organizing the Makers Championship.

The maker championship is a marathon which in fact wants to bring together young technophiles around a competition and allow them to unleash their creative geniuses in innovation.
