The Details

Summer Webmaking Camp for girls 9-12


This camp session is all about using technology to make the world a better place! Campers will work in teams to choose a cause that they are passionate about; from stopping bullying, to saving the rainforest.

Campers will learn HTML & CSS programming languages through ‘hacking’ websites, re-mixing e-cards, and creating their own website from scratch, using Mozilla Thimble. They will design logos, conduct market research, and create beautiful infographics. Campers will also learn about UI/UX, and how they can build an interface that meets the needs of their specific audience.

This week also involves a ton of unplugged activities, as well as a mid-week field trip to a nearby tech company, which offers a behind-the-scenes look into the tech field. After the campers have finished coding and testing their websites, join us for an end-of-session demo and see all of the amazing things that they created!
