“Power is gained by sharing knowledge not hoarding it”
Inspired by the Open Access Movement, Catalyzed by Mozilla across the globe, Mozilla Community in association with the Cochin University of Science And Technology, under the Center for Innovation Technology Transfer and Industrial Collaboration(CITTIC) Cell has decided to host a three day MAKER PARTY to initiate a transition of users to makers from the 20th-22nd of September, 2014.The event follows a simple format that of a festival, where all the inventors, users, scholars, coders will be interacting and sharing knowledge through innovative involvements.
Mozilla is a global, nonprofit organization, community driven, dedicated to building free, open source products like the Firefox web browser. Our mission is to promote openness, innovation & opportunity on the Web Maker Party is Mozilla's global campaign in bringing about this change. Through thousands of community-run events around the world, Maker Party unites educators, organizations and enthusiastic web users with hands-on learning and making. Maker Party 2014 was kick-started by President Obama at White House Maker Faire this June. From June 15 - Sept 15, Mozilla Foundation is hosting a Global Maker Party (https://webmaker.org/en-US/party/) Maker Party inculcates and spreads the “Learning by Making” culture among the masses.
The three day event unrolls in three main venues:
1. Teaching Stations:
“To teach is great, but to inspire is divine”
Hand on classes by trained makers, students in all new cutting edge technologies. Ranging from high end electronics to basic household activities that require expertise. About 40+ areas will be teach/train during the event.
”An art exhibition can be engaging, fun and deeply intellectually satisfying and serious”
Kerala being the new entrepreneurial hub in south, this could be one platform to bring all new age technologies, products like FIN, 3D Printers under one roof. This could help throw some inspiration to young entrepreneurs. 50+ stalls will be up for the audience.
3. Success tale:
“From the horse’s mouth”
Successful, proved entrepreneurs will be sharing their views, stories with an interactive crowd over 3 days.
4. Activities and Fest
“Learn from the world around you”
The event format is all like a festival. We are planing to bring many fun/teaching activities to engage the audience.
In this context, it is with high hopes that we look forward to your organization to partner with us, and help in gathering the needed resources.
We welcome you to run teaching stations that promote wikimedia. Stalls like teaching how to edit wiki will help. The stalls have to be run for two days (21,22) and the format of the teaching stations are just like getting start intros - means course duration must be between 15 mints to 1.30hrs/batch.
For the above mentioned, we can provide the following:
