TOM:Melbourne Makeathon for Assistive Technology
28, 29, 30 November 2016 @ 
Swinburne University of Technology – Advanced Manufacturing and Design Centre

CALL FOR CHALLENGES

CALLING ALL 'NEED KNOWERS' – individuals with a personal understanding of the needs of people with disabilities. 

Take a moment and imagine what you want. Describe your challenges and we’ll connect you with Makers that can develop a solution with you.

In most cases these are the ones living with disabilities themselves; in others, these are relatives, caregivers or professionals. 

At a TOM Makeathon, Need Knowers are critical to teams—working alongside the Makers through each stage of prototyping. 

During the 72 hour makeathon, TOM brings together people who understand needs (‘need-knowers’) alongside engineers, designers, developers and makers, and providing a space for innovation and prototyping.

Join a group of talented individuals for three amazing days to experience how tinkering and technology can impact lives.
