Event Details

This is a beginner level workshop for kids 8-13 years old and their parent/guardian/aunt/older sibling.   

Bring a special kid in your life to this workshop and learn to create a website together from scratch! Note: this workshop is BYOL so each parent or guardian/youth pair is required to bring one laptop on the day of the workshop as well as their own nut-free snacks.

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 kids 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, kids 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 kids to continue creating - both at home and at school.

Thimble also allows for easy sharing, so their awesome webpage can be shared with you, as well as anyone else, with a link!

What is Kids Learning Code? 
Founded by the same women who introduced Ladies Learning Code and Girls Learning Code in 2012, Kids Learning Code is less about “code” and more about changing the world – through teamwork, creativity, and, of course, technology, while leveraging team diversity. 

What Makes Kids Learning Code Different? 
Kids Learning Code has been designed specifically with gender diversity in mind. Like Girls Learning Code, these workshops are beginner-friendly, hands-on and fun. Our 3:1 ratio of kids to mentors will be maintained with balanced numbers of male and female mentors. We believe that if we want to encourage more girls to enter the field of technology, we need to help boys and girls learn to work in technical environments together effectively. 

When developing plans and curriculum for our workshops, we keep in mind a recurrent theme in research on gender and technology: girls approach the computer as a “tool” useful primarily for what it can do; boys more often view the computer as a “toy” or an extension of the self. Thus, technology is used as the means, not the end. same opportunity as her sister.”

“This was a great iniative that is needed to encourage females to become leaders in computer technology field. It was inspiring for my daughter to visit Google, to see a modern office space, to see a bilingual women in a leading position at Google. This camp provided a perspective to girls that they not only can play and use technology, they can design, create and become leaders in technology.”

“My daughter had a blast, the other campers were a great bunch of girls, they learned, grew and had fun. The venue was well chosen, the balance of activities was good. The extra little touches of caring were noticable and appreciated. The camp was down to earth and unpretentious but the counsellors took their jobs seriously. A+. I will recommend to other parents.”
