Maker Faire Africa, next event
On the 27th and 28th of August the 2nd Maker Faire Africa, will take place, this time in Nairobi. The event celebrates African ingenuity, innovation and invention. We have makers coming from all over Kenya showing their inventions, such as time saving devices for agriculture or alternative energy sources. The local design scene will be well represented and the whole gamut of no-tech to latest high-tech such as John Karanja of Whive.com, social media app for mobiles and Dominic Wanjiha of the Fab Lab and Afrigadget. Inventions from East Africa such as ‘The Digital Drum’ from Uganda are also on their way. We are still accepting new makers if you know relevant folk, pass them the message.
Butterfly Works is running programs called ‘Solar Makers’ and ‘Match a Maker’ at the event. Everyone is welcome!
