Attend as a visitor

Maker Faire Africa 2014 is coming to Johannesburg on September 3-6th.  Check our site after July 15th for updates on how to attend our fair, or follow us on Twitter.

Over 6,000 visitors attended Maker Faire Africa 2011, in Cairo, Egypt.
Visitors to our fairs can join in the making, too!  Our ‘Pop-Up Maker Space’ is open to everyone, and offers different levels of involvement,
to suit your interests.  Watch live demos such as objects being 3D printed on Makerbot Replicator, or join in on timed challenges for building things individually or in teams.
Become a hacking sleuth in the Wrecklab, with broken electronics, to  learn about what things are that make up the stuff we use.
Or join us in the Makelab where we try to figure out creative ways to put them back together.
Kids are welcome, too!  Demonstrations and mini-workshops for kids, including “Fun with DNA” (learn how to isolate DNA
extracted from fruit!) and “Snap Together Electronics with LittleBits” will be running throughout the day.
