Youth Hackjam: Learn the tricks and tips of video remix!

Go from watching videos to creating them!


Join us on July 6th to become a creator with Popcorn Maker, a free tool by Mozilla that lets you bring the web into your video – beginners totally welcome!

Popcorn can be used to make everything from an animated gif with sound to a documentary.  No software necessary – all you need is a browser.

Youth will be able to make, create, and collaborate at this learning lab. Using a project-based approach, youth will learn through making with the help of some awesome mentors!
