HACKASAURUS SCHOOL WORKSHOPS
15 -16 September 2011
Inspirational talks and workshops by leading technology experts at Brighton schools
As part of Brighton Digital Festival (September 2011), Lighthouse developed an education programme that introduced young people to inspiring ways of using digital technology.
Hackasaurus is a project run by the Mozilla Foundation to help teach young people about the open web and how to collaboratively build cool stuff for it.
The Hackasaurus team, including local designer and developer Anna Debenham, visited Longhill High School and Varndean School, giving young people an introduction on how to ‘hack’ the web. Students were shown how to edit the code on a website and change the way it looks using Mozilla’s Hackasaurus tools.
Dates: 15 -16 September 2011
Venue: Longhill and Varndean Schools, Brighton
Hackasaurus School Workshops are part of the PARN project (Physical and Alternate Reality Narratives) which designs, develops, creates, exhibits and analyses contemporary forms for storytelling in a pan-European context. PARN as well as Hackasaurus School Workshops is made possible with the support of the Culture Programme (2007-2013) if the European Union.
