Why learn about Webmaking?
From YouTube, to Wikipedia, the websites we click on every single day all have one thing in common - HTML & CSS!
Kids Learning Code is excited to announce an experience that offers learners the opportunity to leverage creativity to build an online web presence. The workshop will focus on reading and writing HTML & CSS using a tool called Mozilla Thimble, an easy-to-use online web making platform that allows for live previewing while coding.
In this workshop, learners will learn HTML & CSS basics by hacking pre-existing text, links, images, and videos on various templates, and then use their skills to create their very own webpage from scratch! Fundamental concepts of code, such as divs, classes and ids will enforce organization and prepare learners to continue creating - both at home and at school.
Mozilla Thimble also allows for easy sharing, so their awesome webpage can be shared with you, as well as anyone else, with a link! Each Webmaking with HTML & CSS workshop has the same flow, but offers learners the opportunity to create a new website every time!
