OUTREACH.

Education

Running global Innovation & Problem-Solving workshops, seminars, and sessions for students K-12 across the world. I have reached over 58,000 students in the past several years, through partnerships with local organizations, schools in remote areas, and museums. The workshops highlight my simple 4-step process for youth to begin solving problems in their local community, while exposing students to emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and 3D printing as tools to create solutions.

RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

Dame Irene Okwuosa Memorial Convent School (Oraifite, Nigeria)

In partnership with the school's founding organization, the Sir Emeka Okwuosa Foundation, I ran sessions with the girls of the Dame Irene Memorial Convent. For International Women's Day, the foundation gathered 600 girls to learn from my framework of solving community problems with STEM. Through my interactive activities and an open brainstorming session, the girls came up with brilliant ideas and worked on early prototypes. It was an honor to help guide these girls as our future leaders and innovators.

Jonathan Gloag Academy & Kenya Children's Home (Nairobi, Kenya)

At the request of the Jonathan Gloag Foundation, I hosted innovation sessions with the students of the Jonathan Gloag Academy in Nairobi, Kenya. These images show the celebration of the 20th Annual Career Day event, in which I delivered a keynote session on career possibilities in technology, to 500+ students and 3000 guests gathered at the event. The Jonathan Gloag Academy serves pupils from across Nairobi, and uplifts students from the Kenya Children's Home and Kiberia slums to access a quality education.
