Activities will include new editor orientation and training, organized with the Wikimedia User Group Nigeria (WUGN). There will be a morning session, with a repeat in the afternoon. Its a closed event with specific target audience in mind. Refreshments generously supplied by Wiki Loves Women.

Template for Creating Info Box with Image[edit]

Cut and paste this example from the edit page here - replace the placeholder text with info for your scientist and a photo file from Wikimedia Commons, and you're good to go. (Having the birthdate means it will calculate age automatically.)

An example of what these info boxes look like is here: Linda Buck

Be careful that you don't leave any of the filler explanatory text there (the words in all capital letters). Always add "alternative image text" - that will show in rollover text and for people who use machines to read (e.g. because of visual impairment). It should be a short caption explaining the image.

The template is everything from here to the end of this section:
