Makers from all corners of academia met in Columbus, Ohio, Tuesday, June 27, 2017. They demonstrated projects including PLC-controlled equipment, robots, software, 3D-printed designs, CNC applications, internet-controlled devices and much more. Eleven student teams were judged by engineering educators and professionals for excellence in one of four areas. The SME and ASEE Manufacturing Division joined forces to host the event and provide prizes.

The Best Paper Award went to "MAKER: Painting Pitches," written by students Emily Meuer Michaela Andrews, Amanda Tenhoff, Kristen Andrews, Paige Huschka, Elena Ryan and Luke Tozour of the University of St. Thomas. For their presentation they demonstrated an application that would translate music into a large-screen graphic display. The open-source project has already been used for musical performances and will be expanded in the near future.
