Let’s have a makerparty!
Mozilla x Vancouver Public Library
Vancouver, Canada

This was a free day of digital making and learning where experimental web literacy pedagogies were  tested out with the collaboration of a diverse team of local makers, teachers, librarians and DIY enthusiasts. We invited over 200 participants from the local community to the Vancouver Public Library for 6 hours of creative hands-on activities which were accessible to a variety of publics. The featured engagements all combined digital and material practices to teach basic web skills to children and adults alike. Many participants stayed several hours beyond the planned end-time of the event, and community feedback was overwhelmingly positive. Activities included building singing Raspberry Pi fruit, making pencils out of sawdust, projecting archival dresses, learning about open source software, and coding robot book mazes. The event was funded by Mozilla's Hive Learning Network.
