There is a technology-related event coming-up in Accra Ghana this weekend. Find excerpts below from makerfaireafrica.com
Maker Faire Africa (MFA), a celebration of African ingenuity, innovation and invention, will take place August 14-16 at the AITI Ghana-India Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence in ICT in Ghana’s capital, Accra. – This event is free to the general public.
Maker Faire and Africa
The idea for Maker Faire Africa came from the thought that it would be a powerful event to bring together African inventors and innovators in the same way that Maker Faire happens in the US. So, with the blessings of O’Reilly to use that brand, we set out to create MFA. What is a Maker Faire anyway? In their own words:
A two-day, family-friendly event to MAKE, create, learn, invent, CRAFT, recycle, think, play and be inspired by celebrating arts, crafts, engineering, food, music, science and technology.
