WHERE AND WHEN?
The 48 hour event will take place at the Fablabil in Holon between March 29th-31st. We will meet at 14:00 and finish with a closing ceremony at 14:00 on the last day (March 31st). The Pre TOM event will take place at the Eliezer, Holon Young Adults Center, on March 14 from 19:00-22:00. Mark your calendars!
WHEN IS THE PRETOM EVENT?
PreTOM will take place two weeks before the TOM Makeathon. This is where you will choose your team and start to work on the challenge. Mark your calendar: 7:00 pm on March 14. Attendance is highly recommended. If you are unable to attend, please let us know as soon as possible.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AS A MAKER?
Start with an open mind and a lot of enthusiasm. You are going to be tested in many ways and come away from TOM with an experience like none other. Expect to be challenged, motivated, and moved by what you and your team will accomplish.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Expect to be working and solving problems most of the time over the 48 hours. You will want to get some shut eye back at your home, but you may want to bring a small bag with toiletries and a change of clothes just in case you pull an all-nighter. Also don't forget closed shoes, workshop clothes, computer and charger.
DO I HAVE TO TAKE OFF WORK?
Yes, this is a 48 hours commitment and you will be off grid for the entire time.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Registration is free.
In case you have registered and you are unable to attend please let us know at:
WHEN WILL I HEAR FROM YOU?
Application close on March 8.
Since TOMs are normally overbooked, not all applicants will become participants. If you have not heard from us by March 12, please contact us: [email protected]
WHAT HAPPENDS TO THE PRODUCTS ONCE THE MAKEATHON IS OVER?
Once the makeathon is over all the products will be available online as an open source solution (free and available online) with instructions on how to build your own. Don't forget to document along the way, so others can also enjoy. Past solutions are at: projects.tomglobal.org
