Every week, people in the community are throwing events all over the world to celebrate Maker Party. We’ve been showcasing many of those events and the cool things people are making on this blog, but there’s still more to share!
Here’s what happened this past week:
This Maker Party was a small event for young people to come to the Centre for Life in Newcastle and learn more about webmaking. By the end of the event, each attendee had written their first line of code! Here is an event blog post recap with pictures, news and links. You can also check out this etherpad for links to makes that were created by attendees during the day. Or you can check out this blog post from the perspective of one of the mentors who was busy teaching throughout the event.
Kitchen Tables are lots of fun, and they are easy to organize. This party organized by Vaibhav involved 7 of his peers who were eager to learn more about Webmaker tools. Learn more about this party and see some of the makes that were created in the short time in this blog post. Learn more about having your own Kitchen Table here.
Storymakers Maker Party is happening today at the Brooklyn Public Library for kids 8-18. The event will feature hands-on activities that celebrate the fact that stories are as much fun to read as they are to make! Youth are creating an online comic strip, design and playtest video games, make a stop-motion animated short, or retell/remix your favorite story using digital media and the web. Check out this postcard make that was created by an attendee inviting a friend to the event.
