Hackasaurus spreads skills, attitudes, and ethics that help youth thrive in a remixable digital world. By making it easy for youth to tinker and mess around with the building blocks that make up the web, Hackasaurus helps tweens move from digital consumers to active producers, seeing the web as something they can actively shape, remix and make better.
As Hackasaurus + P2PU soft launch the first phase of the this project, we’d like to ask for your help by testing out the challenges we’ve created for running a Hackasaurus Hackjam and giving us some feedback and ideas on how we can make them better.
What’s a hackjam? An event that makes hacking and digital literacy accessible, social and fun. In partnership with libraries, learning centers and youth media centers, learners take part in a flexible DIY curriculum of hands-on projects and making.
The Hackjam challenges will make it easy for learners to understand the engagement and planning that goes in to running an event — and our goal is for them to lead to more webmaking events around the world.
