TOM is a global movement of communities that connects Makers: Designers, developers and engineers, to people with disabilities (Need-Knowers) to develop technological solutions for the challenges of daily life. The designs are free and in the public domain and anyone can adapt it to their needs.
We want to look back and see how far we have come. A small memory of the stay in one of our Robledo campuses in the 1960s and an image of what our campus looks like today. We continue to grow and improve for our community and continue to INSPIRE our new generations.
Amazing job at the First Robotics Competition in West Palm Beach, Florida, by The Columbus School Lightning Blue Lizards Robotics Team who made it to semifinals. Our team also won the Entrepreneurship Award In this important world-wide competition. This is a truly incredible achievement that shows that at The olumbus School we create pathways and opportunities for all learners to grow. Congratulations to all participants who are a true inspiration for our future generations!
We are really excited to have our students back on our campus, filling the hallways with games, laughter and conversation. Our classrooms have come back to life and TCS is full of new experiences and joy!

Tikkun Olam Makers is an organization with beginnings in Israel, which aims to improve the daily living conditions of people with physical and cognitive disabilities around the world.
With a collaboration between biomedical engineering, robotics, graphic design, and programming, the Tikkun Olam Makers, build accessible solutions for challenges that these people face daily in an event called “Makeathon”.
During these three days, 6 teams will work hard to create a tailor-made solution for six people with disabilities (Need Knowers). Some of our students will be working on these teams.
Thanks to all the people who make this great initiative possible!
We invite you to follow us on Instagram at @tomcolombia to learn a little more about this year’s Need Knowers, who will benefit with TOM.
*Note: This year, due to biosecurity protocols there will be no guided tours during the event.
We are very happy to welcome you to 2021! We are sure this year will be filled with happiness, hope and great moments.
At TCS we want to remind you of our Biosecurity Protocols. Everything you need to keep safe!
