Make It Work - Film Showing and Pre Screen Event!

BEFORE THE FILM: 5:30pm-6:30pm The Warbler - 4533 N Lincoln Ave Grab some food or a drink and join ROMP and Make It Work's Director, Kern Konweiser + the film's subject Aadeel Akhtar to learn more about the film and the work ROMP is doing to support geniuses like Aadeel. THE FILM: 7pm Make it Work follows Aadeel Akhtar, a neurobiology PhD student from the University of Illinois, who seeks to fulfill a childhood dream of bringing state of the art prosthetics to the third world. Made from parts costing less than $50, his robotic hand is indestructible and delivers sensory feedback to the wearer that doesn’t exist in even the most expensive commercial devices. Aadeel has been working with ROMP in developing the hand since 2014 and now he’s ready to take it out of the lab and into the world on “ROMP patient #1”, a Muslim spiritual leader thousands of miles away at the ROMP lab in Ecuador.
