Makers Making Change
Neil Squire’s Makers Making Change program is aiming to set an #ATWorldRecord on the UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities to raise awareness of the need for affordable assistive technology (AT) solutions for people with disabilities. Ever thought you would get a chance to be part of a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ attempt? Here’s your big chance! 30 minutes on Dec 3rd is all you need to help set a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for “The most users to take an online DIY assistive technology lesson in 24 hours.”
Please register now to participate in breaking a world record.
Participants in our Guinness World Records attempt will learn the following about DIY Assistive Technology:
· How DIY Assistive Technologies fill a gap for many people with disabilities.
· How to use 3D Printing in creating DIY Assistive Technologies.
· Where to find more open-source DIY Assistive Devices.
· Experiences of people with disabilities using DIY Assistive Solutions.
· How you can get started building DIY Assistive Technologies.
Help to spread the word! Let everyone know that you are participating in a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS attempt, by sharing the hashtag #ATWorldRecord and having them register on the website. Once you have registered, you will receive an email with a link. All you have to do on December 3rd is click into the lesson and watch the videos. Here is a sneak peek video of what you’ll do to help be a part of making history.
