Are you interested in learning more about TOM either as a maker, someone in need of accessible design, or in other ways? Read below for a quick Mission Statement written by the head of the U-Penn branch.
My name is Gabrielle Weiss and I am a rising senior at UPenn. I work with a team of passionate students to integrate the TOM Global organization into Penn’s campus. Our club, the TOM Community at Penn, aims to facilitate the connection between students creating devices with individuals who are in need of these devices. Each product/device that is created for TOM is then open sourced on the TOM site and can be recreated across the globe.
For more info about the organization: https://tomglobal.org
We take any and all ideas – if you have an idea of a product/device that could be beneficial for you, a friend, or anyone in the world, we’d love to make it! Our goal is to meet as many unmet needs as we possibly can.
Please feel free to reach out to me via phone or email, and I’d love to chat in more detail. I’m open to hearing all thoughts, ideas, recommendations – anything is possible!
