Mozilla Science Lab Global Sprint 2015 Kolkata

Hi, all

This is Ranodeep, a Mozillian and a first year student of Btech of West Bengal University of Technology,Kolkata,West Bengal India Had just attended the Mozilla Science Lab Sprint 2015 in Kolkata

The Mozilla Science Lab is an Initiative of Mozilla Helping  a global network of researchers, tool developers, librarians and publishers collaborate to further science on the web. Mozilla believes in a community of peers working, learning and building together is needed to make research thrive on the open web.

Thus a Global Sprint was held at 4th and 5th June all over the Globe.


I had joined the Sprint In Kolkata @Meetup Space in Barasat.

Mozilla Kolkata Community had come forward towards Hosting this sprint in Kolkata

It was fun interacting with the whole community discussing new Science ideas. I couldn’t make it to the second day. But the first day was worth remembering.

While Sumantro Da, Ayan Da and Biraj Da were busy working on the technical front of the Science. I , Koustav Da and Sukanta Da worked on the non technical part .

The Swags were really a cool once….

Last Not but the least…

My Planning to Involve more kids into this Mission of Science Lab  :

Involving Kids in Mozilla Science Lab Activities…
1.>Mozilla Science Lab is all about empowering people to  use science in their day to day activities while they are having digital experience.
2.>School Level is actually the place from where the foundation of science begins and we must start empowering students with a digital experience so that they can learn and share their day to day experiences in the form of contributions towards the science lab projects
Contributions range from basic physics experiments like refractive index to having the experiments of chemistry and share the experience o the students online.
1.>Today Technology and Computing has reached its heights if we consider our country India itself every other guy in Middle or Senior School posses an Android phone and they are more glued to their phones compared to their books so why not we make make science interesting for them and bring it in front of them in such a way that they will surely be enthusiastic to learn more about science.
My plan is to establish Mozilla Clubs in the Schools in around my place with the Help of the Kolkata Community and there by implementing the Science Lab projects into it…
The Plan goes like…
     1.>The Senior Class students Who are very much excited in science would surely love to share there experience…Thereby Data   Collection on one of the Specific topic for example Refraction of Light is done
     2.>There will be a hand full of guys in each and every school we set up the Mozilla Club who will be good in Coding either in Blue J or C as a result they Can create a Small app on that very topic
     3.>I would love to introduce Webmaker tools to them so that they can create an Interesting HTML Page on that very Example of Refractive Index and it can be shared all across on the Web.
      4.>So that Next time any junior wants to check out Google before going through that Experiment or Phenomenon can Actually get that thing which will like create an Enthusiasm  in him.
      5.>This very effort will help us achieve both the Goals of Science Lab Initiative and The Mozilla Clubs in Schools…
2.>As one of the main Aims of the Science Lab initiative of Mozilla is to bring Science to everyone why should the Less Fortunate be kept aside.
    So the second Plan is :
    1.> The Volunteers from the Community will walk to the Slum Areas with some models or a few things that are necessary..
    2.>Demonstrate the Common or the Basic phenomenons  of Science like the Electrostatic force and other phenomenons which we see in the nature… thereby increasing their thrust for Science…
    3.>This very effort will help us achieve two Goals one is of #Teach the Web and Science Lab Initiative
3.>In Case of Engineering I would love to Come up with an idea :
   1.> Lets take in some non technical people like people involved in Bio Technology or Botany
   2.> Gather a lot of information about any specific topic like DNA Structure..
   3.>And then Can Actually implement to build something Big…
   4.> Which can be easily be used by people in their Genre to understand that very topic….
   5.>Thereby Helping us to achieve the Goal of Mozilla Science Lab Initiative
Thanks for Reading the Blog…
Doing Good is a part of our Code 🙂
