After Jordan’s awesome opportunity to present at a Maker Health event with the Health and Human Services Department’s Idea Lab, MedStar Health and the National Institutes of Health, we had a chance to meet some fabulous people in the maker world. They’re making sure Jordan’s work isn’t done! Her ideas have more opportunity to expand with the help of others.
This weekend, TOM (Tikkun Olam Makers) is teamed up with Nova Labs to hold the TOM:DC Makeathon for Assistive Technology. Jordan was invited to participate as a “Need Maker” in the event even though we don’t live in the area. (The event is happening in Reston, Virginia.) Instead, she’s drawing out her vision and created this video to explain a challenge.
I’m excited to see what the makers can do to build off of Jordan’s vision! I promise to report back as soon as possible.
