What is Student Outreach?
It's a Mozilla Labs Concept Series channel to give industry related experience exposure to students at global institutions - via co-created and collaborative Design (UX, UCD, HCI, IxD) courses.
We aim to directly work together to propose and structure a engaging course module that’s relevant to the institutions own goals, interests and timing schedules.
Full support will be provided during the duration of the course including community feedback, guest lectures and mentor appearances throughout the project.
