We Make @ UCLA

Picture this. You're just about to head back to your dorm when you hear what sounds like curiosity-inducing chaos: eggs smashing, gears whirring, metal clashing, and students cheering. What you stumble upon is a sight to behold. It's an evening of organized chaos, where Makers at UCLA and Los Angeles County come together to showcase fascinating builds, participate in friendly competition, and expand their minds.
