The Maker Party is on! Join the global campaign to teach the web.

Maker PartyThe Maker Party starts today – and you’re invited to attend, no matter where you are in the world!

We’re excited to help spread the word about Mozilla’s Maker Party. Through thousands of community-run events around the world, the Maker Party unites educators, organizations, and enthusiastic Internet users of all ages and skill levels.

Similar to Mozilla, we share the belief that the web is a global public resource that’s an essential part of our modern life. Technology shapes how we learn, how we connect, and how we communicate, but not everyone has the basic skills and information they need to harness the power of the web. We want to give everyone the tools and resources they need to understand and effectively use web technologies. That’s why we’re supporting this global effort to teach web literacy through hands-on learning and making with the Maker Party.

Join the celebration by attending a Maker Party event in your local area. It’s a great chance to improve your web know-how, participate in hands-on making experiences, and get together with others in your community. Or consider throwing a small Maker Party of your own – these resources provide everything you need to plan and promote your party.

The party is on and continues through September 15th. Take part in the global effort to learn and move beyond simply consuming the web to understanding and creating it, so it remains open and accessible to all.
