The first Webmaker event held on Saturday June 29th in France was a real success although it was only aimed at a limited number of high school pupils due to equipment restrictions. I have planned this event during the wonderful and instructive REMO training days in Athens. It was postponed from May 14th due to exams and the nearing end of school year in France. It was held at Jean Monet high school in a small town called Gruchet-le-Valasse in the heart of the Pays de Caux, the Normandy country.
When I first wrote to the school principal, she already knew that I was a Mozilla volunteer and a rep. So the idea of organizing a Mozilla event immediately pleased her and the go head was granted right away. Before that, I wrote a description of the Webmaker initiative with links to French press articles about Webmaker and more links in English. Actually she was surprised not to be aware of all this Webmaking movement although it was in the news regularly.More
