Firefox OS Africa Blog - Student club 1

In October 2015, the Firefox Student Club at AAST held an event called “#mozilla_isn’t_just_a_firefox”. It was a fantastic event that attracted a lot of students and others to Mozilla. So, are you ready to know more about this event? Let’s go!

First of all, the club members made up of the logistics team and social media team, organised a plan for the event which was in AASTــAlexandria.
The Firefox Student Club at AAST prepared a welcome party for the new students to spread the word about recruiting newcomers to the club. They had a large amount of students who wanted to join as they received over 130 applications!
Here are some snapshots of the welcome party, which shows that it was a huge success…
