This signup is for the PUBLIC PRESENTATIONS & CLOSING CEREMONY of the Empower2Make 72 Hour Make-A-Thon for Assistive Technology.

From April 12th to 14th, 2019 teams of elite designers, innovators, entrepreneurs and individuals with special needs will converge at Nova Labs. They will form teams of "Makers" working along side "Knowers". Together, over the course of 72 hours, the teams will develop affordable solutions to specific challenges in Assistive Technology which will result in working prototypes. Our goal is to work with partner companies to reproduce these products and make them available the world over, open source and free of charge.
