The official results of the 2017 Instructables Makerspace Contest were announced this week.

The website hosting the contest, Instructables.com, is a place where makers can document their projects and share instructions on how to make everything from simple recipes to complicated technology. The goal of the makerspace contest was to document as many projects as possible with step-by-step instructions (instructables).

This year 74 makerspace teams from around the world competed for over $50,000 in prizes, including a laser cutter, 3D printers and CNC machines.

YuKonstruct’s team finished in 14th place!

After last year’s first place finish, our members took it a bit easier this summer but still achieved a very respectable placement amid the large pool of competitors. YuKonstruct’s team published a total of 26 instructables, 22 of which were featured. Featured instructables are selected by the website’s editors and recognize well-documented projects of a high quality.

For publishing over 15 featured instructables, the makerspace has won a prize pack including a Dremel 2000-01 Versa Tip Precision Butane Soldering Torch.
