Maker Faire Africa | Co-Organizer

Maker Faire Africa is an annual pan-African festival of ingenuity and invention, with serious hands-on training in a wide variety of skills and emergent technologies for Making + Manufacturing. Participants of the 3-day event share their past inventions with the general public, and work on new ones together, in a bottom-up' spirit of collaborative creativity that includes basic soldering to sustainable product design, DIY biology, 3D desktop printing, crowd-sourced funding and more.

Jennifer joined Maker Faire Africa in 2010. Since then, she's become a strong advocate for design education as integral to the fair's activities, and has helped expand the fair's workshops to include Sustainable Product Development, DIY Biology, Indigenous Design for 3D Printing, Design for Manufacturing, and a Pop-Up Maker Space. She is part of MFA's Organizing Team, along with Emeka Okafor, Henry Barnor, Mark Grimes and Erik Hersman.
