It will be more fun than you imagine it to be now, so relax Smile | :)

The important thing is to be knowledgeable about what you are speaking of; that, you are. If there's a little bastard continuously interrupting you with questions, tell him (or her) to save the question or write it down.

None of them comes to judge you, all of them come to learn from you. Be patient and prepared to explain stuff multiple times. If you don't know something, simply admit it and tell them you'll look it up and come back to them - don't try to bluff.

It also helps to prepare a bit; divide it into three sections of half an hour each with the first covering introduction and background. You can "plunder" 15 minutes of the last section for questions from the audience.
