Hackjam with NSUFSA,NSUWF,NSUEC

After 1 month planning, the day came today! Exams and advising just ended last week, so our target was to do webmaker on holidays. This time we just expanded ourselves with 2 more clubs named NSU wireless Forum (deals with all the tech related events, teaches people about tech) and English Club. We have a good relation with these two clubs so we were expecting a good start with our university mates and our expectation came to reality today.

Early in the morning freezing with cool breeze me and my sister arrived at North South University, in half an hour all of our FSAs reached and the room was opened for us. While fixing internet and stuffs people started coming.

People seemed so excited about the event. Most of them brought laptops with internet(we had internet modems as well as NSU WIFI).

Our fellow NSUFSA mate Rashik Ishrak Nahian welcomed everyone warmly and started talking about Mozilla. He covered contribution ways. I personally loved his slides a lot !

And then the core webmaker part was started by our own Kazi Rokib Ahmed(NSU Wireless forum Vice president, member of Eng club & FSA). He explained the basic steps of HTML & CSS to people. Most of them did not know how HTML and CSS works. They seemed damn interested to learn. Some of them asked some question as well while learning.

Following him, our awesome president of Wireless Forum Mursalin Kabir started taking his session. He took his session on X-Ray Goggles. The way he interacted with people was really good! Everyone enjoyed his session!

After that we divided participants into 3 groups of thimble, popcorn and x-ray goggles. They made some makes. Some of them were really good and some were really funny!

To energize them up we gave them delicious pastries, drinks, samucha etc (Oh man, I am hungry now!)

After having yummy food, we had Mozquiz of 10 questions which were set by our fellow NSUFSA Tuhin Sahir. Then we got our awesome winners who were given out cool swags of Mozilla. They seemed really happy to get some!

We got 11 new contributors from this event. Everyone loved the swags which were given away during the event. Mozilla Badge was popular and the webmaker stickers as well!

He at first asked the present students what do they actually think about the term Mozilla?

Our respected Vice President (Coordination & Planning) Kazi Rokib Ahmed started to share his thoughts at first then serially everyone explained.Many of them did not know that Mozilla gives the young generation to contribute for them.

Then THEANAM bro started talking in a description about Mozilla Foundation.
