Mozilla India is conducting a Maker Party today at Jaaga and I going to conducting a workshop there.
‘Maker Party: Bangalore 2013’ is a Mozilla Hive India initiative in an attempt to map and empower a community of educators and creative people who share a passion to innovate, evolve and change the learning landscape.
The event has a simple format like science fair, where facilitators are sharing something exciting, teach something new in a engaging way. This event is a platform to connect diverse organizations and encourage connected learning.
What I am going to be doing
Since we are expecting a couple of school kids, I am planning to conduct a workshop explaining how people can get started with electronics.
I am planning to showcase both Arduino and Raspberry Pi and tell them how easy it is to get started. For Raspberry Pi, I am going to show the demos that I created for my recent PyCon talk as well.
I am personally really excited since this is the first time I am going to be interacting with kids and teach them some electronics, which I hoped someone did for me when I was kid 🙂
