Makerfest 2015 in Ahmedabad, India.

"Maker fest is not just another technology event, but a global social movement where people like you and me who invent things informally get a chance to showcase, collaborate, form community and dream about making our world a better place, with our inventions, ideas and network. "

ABOUT MAKERFEST:

Maker Fest is the largest gathering of Makers from all across the nation. The persons choosing the road less travelled and bringing revolutions that promise change history. MakerFest is carousel of ideas that have been given life. Maker Fest monumentalizes the learning and explorations one faced during the making of something new using the already established.

Several Makers in 100s of number had participated in the event. http://www.makerfest.com/meet-the-makers/

What Did We do?

Mozilla was a part of Makerfest 2015 to teach the Web. To teach Internet. To teach Webmaker. We taught the participants how to remix webpages using the three tools.

On the second day of makerfest, we had a workshop done where the mozillians were divided into small groups of three and  were assembled with a bunch of participants.


                                                               We did have fun in teaching.



We learnt how to drive a unicycle. We learnt Graffiti. We experienced Oculus drift. We printed Firefox logo on a 3D printer. We hopped into a conversation "How to start a makerspace in your city?" We had hands on Google glass. We measured our focus by a device called "Brain activity scanner"

Demonstrated light beam tool. Showed the participants, the dev devices including Keons, Flames, Tablet, and many other devices. A selfie app using the appmaker attracted a lotta attention. Net neutrality.

These 2 days of awesomeness came to an end after taking few cranky pics.
