Innovators never do the big things but small things in a great way. That’s why, I  participated as an organizer of Mozilla Webmaker Event named as #kitchenparty@DGP.

As the participants were college students so following was the events:
 1) Warm up with Basic knowledge of Web.
 2) Basic knowledge of HTML & CSS.
 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 warm up session, I told them about Thimble. I started with HTML basics and about CSS, How to use them? How to link HTML with CSS? Then after I came to the main part i.e Thimble. What is thimble ? What is the purpose ? How to make  Thimble page? . And I gave them home task to make thimble page on the freedom fighter of our country India.
