Since 2008, Hive Learning Network has been at the forefront of working with youth to help them explore their interests, develop new skills and make things worth sharing. This includes making everything including videos, webpages, games, inventions, apps, stories, events and more. The making could take place almost anywhere—Athens, New York City, Chicago, London, Toronto or Berlin. It might take place in a teen-only public library space in Chicago, a Minecraft game world, or a skate park in lower Manhattan. Hive Learning Network events are places where youth meet, learn, share, make and invent together. Check out last week’s Hive San Francisco Pop Up where youth came from all over to build and dream up ways to save the earth.
Our next big Hive event is just days away. We’ll be meeting up in London at this year’s Mozilla Festival to empower young people to make, code and create awesome things for the web and world. Starting on Friday night November 9 through Sunday night November 11, you can learn or make something new. Coding for Teens is a category of cool sessions for young people who want to make and do at MozFest. Want to hack a game, design an app, report a story? Prefer to remix a video, lounge at the webmaker bar (coffee!) or invent something brand new? It’s all there.
Hive Learning Networks will also be in full effect at MozFest. So you can always join the Hive team in our Hacktivate Youth Laboratory to meet new people and try something new. You’ll have an open invitation to drop in, hang out and work with us. You can contribute to the Superheroes of Mozfest video exposé, make something on the web or geek out with other young makers from WNYC Radio Rookies, Black Girls Code, Coder Dojo, London Zoo, Rev-, MOUSE and Global Action Project. Whether it’s participating in design challenges, collaborating in the Youth Laboratory or hacking at the Games Arcade, we’ll all be at Mozfest to make, share and code with you! Hope to see you there!
