Mozilla's Hackasaurus tools make it easy for kids to remix, create and share on the web. The X-Ray Goggles allow learners to see what the web is made of, remix and change their favorite web pages, and share their creations with friends. Learn more at http://hackasaurus.org
What is a Hack Jam?
- Local events or “hack jams” make webmaking and digital literacy easy, social and fun
- Hack jams are based on the premise that the web is a collaborative, open, co-building environment
- We’ll be using tools that help make it easy for youth to explore, remix and redesign the web
- Understanding how to tinker with code is a skill that’s in demand and makes youth more employable
- Taking part in a hack jam helps kids develop learning competencies, including critical thinking and interpersonal skills
- Working as part of a group or managing a project are important soft skills that employers look for
- All of the tools and curricular content are designed to be peer learning experiences that are constructed and evolved by community input and contribution
- Youth will usually leave a hack jam event having made something - and this event will be no different!
Who can participate?
We invite kids between the ages of 9 - 14 to join us.
What should I bring?
Bring enthusiasm! Bring creativity! Laptops for all participants are provided. Because space is limited, please reserve your ticket in advance - it's free!
