They were shown a variety of cameras and other photographic equipment, which was available. They also had the opportunity to display the pictures they took with the cameras provided by them the TIFAP team recently, and learned how to construct a Story Board with their snapshots. The children also won prizes such as a camera, and films for the best photographs they brought in.

Each child received a folder containing information on:
· Some famous Photographers of the 19th and 20th Centuries.
