The annual campaign of Mozilla foundation to teach the web to everyone as we call it “Maker Party” has held in September 11, 2014 in American International University, Bangladesh(AIUB). The FSAs of AIUB really worked hard to make a successful event and many FSA from Mozilla Bangladesh Community have joined to increase delight atmosphere of the event. The participants from all department of AIUB showed a hugh response to learn the web literacy.
The “Maker Party” starts with a brief introduction about Webmaker and Mozilla foundation’s mission and vision. Before the event, the participants found a little bit surprising when they exposed the shuffling seat arrangements according to their given tags and formed into a four member group. The purpose of that seat arrangement was to introduce to unknown people and make new friends.
Early at the event, our finest FSA, Salamn Rahman Desh and Md. Anisur Rahman took seminar about Webmaker tools like Popcorn Maker, Thimble and AppMaker was taken by Rifaz Nahiyan. X-Ray goggles wasn’t taken cause of it’s internal error. They gave a proper tour and instruction by making samples in front of the participants. After one and half an hour seminar, our FSA distribute some task among the participants and also we throw some Ice-Breaking session to spread a pleasurable environment. Those who answered correctly and humorously got swags like stickers, firefox badges.
The participants had so much fun and they were creative. We provide colorful paper with sticky notes and color pens.
Some of them sketch, some of them wrote their first line of code with thimble, some of them make various origami like The National Flag, Murir Thongga, Mic, Boat, Frog, Water lily flower and so on. One of the participants made a video chat with Appmaker.
At the end of the event, competitors also participate FAQ. In there, they showed the eagerness to use Firefox OS and other mozilla projects. They showed full support to contribute to mozilla. Then every group submitted their creation and among them, one of the groups showed enormous creation. They won the Mozilla T-shirt and they were very cheerful.
And finally our “Maker Party” ended with a hugh group photo together with FSAs and participants.
