Hand on on webmaker was cool, as most of them became familiar with webmaker tools.

So I gave them home task to make some remixes   based on thimble and popcorn. Hoping to publish them very soon.

Some published thimble pages by our participants.

 3) How we can remix video through Popcorn Maker.
 4) How to Hack the Web with X-Ray Goggles.
 5) How to design a new web page with Thimble.

So we started with basic knowledge of web, like what are webpages? how they are built? what is the use? etc.

After this warmup activity i told them about popcorn remixing, what is the purpose? How we can remix a video? . I started by explaining them about HTML and  CSS.

I gave them some project based on our upcoming Independence Day, which will soon be on web.
