CoderDojo to celebrate teaching and learning the web with Mozilla Maker Party
CoderDojo are delighted to be partnering with the Mozilla webmaker Team to celebrate teaching and learning the web with Mozilla’s Maker Party. Join Dojos like CoderDojo NYC and CoderDojo Girls in Charlottesville and have a Maker Party at your next Dojo by the closing date September 15th!
What is a maker Party?
Maker Party is Mozilla’s global campaign to teach the web. Through thousands of community-run events around the world, Maker Party unites educators, organisations and enthusiastic Internet users of all ages and skill levels. All Dojos are eligible to register their next event as a Maker Party as they are teaching and learning the web!

A message from the Mozilla Webmaker Team:
We’re building and gathering tools/resources/training/community to support you and your Dojo at webmaker.org
“CoderDojo shares Mozilla’s belief that the web is a global public resource that’s integral to modern life: it shapes how we learn, how we connect and how we communicate. But many of us don’t understand its basic mechanics or what it means to be a citizen of the web. That’s why we’re supporting this global effort to teach web literacy through hands-on learning and making with Maker Party from July 15th – September 15th. Thank you for all you’ve done already to ensure young people worldwide, move beyond simply consuming the web to understanding and creating it, so it remains open, accessible and ours. Can’t wait to see what gets built during Maker Party at CoderDojos across the globe!”
