The call for Makers is now open for the 2020 TOM: Columbia University Makeathon, taking place at the Makerspace at Columbia University over the weekend of the 21 - 23 February 2020. Applications close Jan 15. You will be contacted by TOM after all applications have been reviewed.
We are seeking Makers to collaborate with Need-Knowers (individuals living with a disability, support workers, family members) to develop a solution together (prototype) over a weekend marathon of making, otherwise known as a makeathon. During this time, food, supplies, and workspace will be provided to make sure you have everything you need to make a difference in the life of your Need-Knower.
A Maker is anyone who has a passion for creating, and you don't need to be an engineer to participate in this event!
The applications are slated to be fairly competitive, so do your best to accurately describe what makes YOU stand out as a maker. We are glad you have made it this far, and I hope to see you in January!
APPLICATION DEADLINE - January 15th, 11:59 PM EST.
PreTOM event - January 31st from 3-6 PM EST.
