In November 2017, I had the privilege to go up to Bundaberg in a team consisting of 5 other people. We participated in a three-day 72hour Makeathon, organized by TOM Queensland (Tikkun Olam Makers). My team was from TADQ (Technology for Ageing and Disability Queensland). There were 6 other competing teams, they all had their own individual projects to contruct. My team’s project was to design and build a beach wheelchair from scratch in 72 hours for a young man in Far North Queensland. Fortunately, we able to just finish our project in time and was ready to be delivered to the young man. A great event with a great cause.
