Have you ever thought of creating your own webpage? Have you ever wondered how digital media is used to help create awareness of the environment? If you answered β€˜yes’, then this is the workshop for you! Note: this workshop provides nutritional snacks and computers. Bus tickets are available to those who require transportation. A parent/guardian must pick up their child at 4:00 pm.

This workshop experience offers local Hamilton students the opportunity to learn how digital media and the environment go hand-and-hand. Participants will research one of three Hamilton Habour Challenges, set out by the Bay Area Restoration Council (BARC) and then use their creativity and problem-solving skills to create awareness of environmental issue at the Hamilton Habour! Attendees will use Tryit, an easy-to-use editor and learn the basics of HTML. They will create their very own webpage by adding text, links, images and video! After the session, they will be able to continue to explore to develop their coding skills and even show you their masterpiece!
