Wonderful womoz from Rajasthan (a local community of Mozilla India) organized a webmaker party in Lakshmangarh. This event took place in a government school where the students have almost no access to computers. So the organizers focused on explaining the basis of computers and the internet to the students. Because the internet will play a role in their future and these children are the future of their country.
I will now hand over to Ayushi to explain how the event went…
So here is the story of our Event in Bal Seva Sadan, Lakshmangarh (A town in Mozilla Community Rajasthan) that was held on last Sunday.
The team gathered up at 4:30pm. We reached School. Students were awaiting for us excitedly.
This time Mozilla Mustians were more excited for the event.Because this time we were having some more new enthusiastic members in the team.
We taught the students of class 3rd to 5th. They didn’t have much knowledge about the web. When we taught them about Internet they find it very interesting as they were not familiar with the exciting features of Internet.
We started by the gaming session so that the session become more interactive.
Tripti told them about us. And gave a basic knowledge that what things they were going to learn.
Priyanjali came up with the idea of Computer System and devices of Computer. They all have seen computer but not Laptops. So this time we showed them how laptop works.
Then Garvita taught about the Networks and How can we communicate with the other computers all over the world.
Then me (Ayushi) told them about the Web and Web browser (especially Mozilla Firefox ;)) and how we use Internet.
Srishti told them about us 🙂 . Who are we (FSA) and what do we do.
Rishbha gave very good examples of Web Security and made it easier to understand.
And finally Rashi told them about Open source.
Then We asked some questions. They were very happy by answering and getting goodies and chocolates.
So whole session was completed by 6 in the evening.
Team members were working and coordinating with each other so well and Event went awesome.
We had an another event i.e. Webmania also with school students, we taught them about Computer and Web. How it is important for their future and about much more.
Thank You So much Prachi Jain and whole Rajasthan Community who helped us.
We will conduct some more events there soon 🙂
