2019 Vancouver TELUS Days of Giving Build Event

May 31 @ 2:30 pm - 6:00 pm PDT

A light touch switch

Since 2017, Neil Squire Society’s Makers Making Change Program has worked closely with TELUS in providing a number of hands on STEM event for their employees as part of the TELUS Days of Giving program. The first two years, the events were focused as day long build events of the LipSync. This year, we are focusing on building low-cost access switches that would enable people with disabilities to access technology and environmental controls.

Learn to Build an Access Switch

On Friday May 31, 2019, Makers Making Change and TELUS will be hosting a drop-in format build event at TELUS Garden in Vancouver. It is opened to TELUS employees and to any public guests.

Builds will take approximately 15 minutes to make and will involve some soldering. Experience in electronics and soldering is not required, so drop by and support your community though increasing access to technology for everyone.

Participate in Canadian AccessAbility Week

These events will also be open the public so feel free to share this with your friends and family across Canada.
