Resource Description
Scibridge A student run non-profit, started by JUAMI alumni, that creates hands-on learning kits in the US that get deployed and used in undergrad and high school classrooms in Africa.
JUAMI-OCF The JUAMI open computing facility. This makes computational resources and software available to members of the JUAMI community, as well as running workshops and training sessions. Software includes Life Cycle Analysis software, scientific computing software (Python and Matlab) and so on. This project grew from a proposal at the 2018 JUAMI school.
Women Supporting Women in the Sciences (WS2) WS2 is an international initiative unifying and supporting graduate and professional-level women and allies in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), while providing outreach to elementary and secondary level students. It grew out of a collaboration at the 2016 JUAMI school in Tanzania.
JUAMI-OCF-DFT This is part of the broader JUAMI-OCF project but is funded by Google to provide Computational Materials science calculations (Density Functional Theory calculations) to the JUAMI community. It also runs workshops.

Past participants had this to say about JUAMI 2016

“JUAMI has given me a better understanding of the entire landscape of sustainable energy technologies.”

98% of students agree that JUAMI advanced their understanding of concepts and theory important in the field of materials science

“[JUAMI] has helped me see how the ‘pieces fit together’… scientist and engineer can work together on addressing larger design problems.”

Around 70% of students have identified new collaborators due to JUAMI

“Relationships! This was probably the most important part of JUAMI.”

“I can better understand where my research fits, and the direction in which It needs to go to create progress.”

98% of students agree that JUAMI was worth the 2 weeks spent and would recommend it to a colleague

“I’ve been reinvigorated to complete such international research collaborations now and I see them as real and attainable possibilities.”

“I have gained the chance of a lifetime to broaden my network with various individuals from different countries who share similar goals and a vision as myself.”
