Help me spread the Maker Movement to Liberia! This summer I will be teaching a free Arduino & Making course at iLab, a non-profit computer lab in Monrovia.

Makers in Monrovia is my effort to help the awesome people in Monrovia, Liberia learn about making creative technology using simple and inexpensive tools. This summer, I am going to be in Liberia teaching free programming courses in the iLab, a publically accessible non-profit computer lab. While I’m there, I would love to teach an Intro to Arduino & Making course, but I need your help to cover the costs of the materials to teach the class.

I’ll be teaching people the basics of electronics and programming so that they can start making creative projects of their own. After the course is over, all the materials—Arduinos, tools, sensors, components, etc.—will stay in the iLab where they will continue to be accessible to people who want to explore, create and make awesome projects.

If you can help out, there are some cool perks in store for you. As many of you may know, I have published quite a few photography books on various destinations around the world. While I’m in Monrovia, I’ll be capturing some amazing images of this unique place and as a supporter, you’ll be the benefactor of a signed and matted limited-run print!

If you’re wondering what types of projects can come out of a course like this, here’s a few samples from the course I was the teaching assistant for at Berry College.

Awesome Projects
