Coming Soon: Maker Party Wellington

MakerBox is happy to announce that the venue for our Maker Party has been secured!  Please join us on September 13th at the Miramar Community Centre as we learn – and teach others – how to move beyond simply consuming the web to understanding and creating it with Mozilla’s Maker Party.

We are proud to be partnering with Mozilla to celebrate teaching and learning the web with Maker Party and we are not alone.  Through thousands of community-run events around the world, Maker Party unites educators, organizations and enthusiastic Internet users of all ages and skill levels.

MakerBox shares Mozilla’s belief that the web is a global public resource that’s integral to modern life: it shapes how we learn, how we connect and how we communicate. But many of us don’t understand its basic mechanics or what it means to be a citizen of the web. That’s why we’re supporting this global effort to teach web literacy through hands-on learning and making with Maker Party.

If you are not in Wellington, we still encourage you to attend a Maker Party event in your community. It’s a great chance to improve your knowledge of how the web works, while getting your hands dirty and having a little fun. Better yet, why not gather a few friends and throw a small event of your own.

We can’t wait to see what you’ll create!
