The call for challenges is now open for the 2020 TOM:Columbia University Makeathon, taking place at the Makerspace in Columbia University February, 21 - 23. Makers are seeking Need-Knowers (individuals living with a disability, support workers, family members, health professionals, anyone with an intimate understanding of a neglected need) to submit a challenge they face on a daily basis. Need-Knowers will be placed into teams with Makers (engineers, designers, allied health professionals, etc.) and together you will develop a solution (prototype) over a weekend marathon of making.
If you are unsure what constitutes a challenge or would like to find out more about the TOM:Columbia University Makeathon, contact [email protected].
