Carlos Mario finalized his studies with honors in 2010 at the Instituto Técnico Salesiano Pedro Justo Berrío. Thereafter he enrolled at EAFIT in order to take up his studies as a product design engineer, a specialization that he had been dreaming of ever since he was a child.
Meanwhile Carlos has designed many innovative products, for example the "Corn Walker" (as seen on the photo) or the "HandBike", a racing bike for handicapped persons. The young inventor looks at himself as a beneficiary yet also as a full-fledged member of Fundación Educación, which contributes to the development of scholars on a holistic basis. Recently he was granted another scholarship, the Beca Iberoaméerica Santander, for a semester abroad at the Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María in Valparaiso, in Chile.
