From Thursday, September 30 to Saturday, October 2, we will host TOM Medellín 2021. This initiative is organized by The Columbus School, the EIA University and the Antioquia Rehabilitation Committee.
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.
