LipSync Update: TELUS LipSync Buildathon

This Friday, we’ll be in sunny Calgary for the TELUS LipSync Buildathon. Around 20 TELUS employees will work together to build 20 LipSyncs, supported by Makers Making Change. Teams will be supplied with the tools, components, parts and instructions.

We will also have the pleasure of meeting The Honourable Kent Hehr, Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities, again, as he talks about the role of makers of assistive technology in creating opportunities for people with disabilities. He had previously met us as part of our travels for the TOM:Calgary Makeathon in August earlier this year.

When: October 27th, 9:00am – 4:00pm
Where: TELUS, 2912 Memorial Drive SE, Floor 1, Calgary, AB T2A 6R1 (new window)

Here are some throwback photos from our TELUS Buildathon in June earlier this year, where employees participated to construct 30 LipSyncs as part of the TELUS Day of Giving.
