Description

Teens Learning Code. Add Interactivity and effects to your website. jQuery for Beginners.



If you are looking to get your feet wet when it comes to programming, then this is the workshop for you. HTML and CSS are the backbone of all websites, and knowledge of them is a necessity if you are interested in things like web development, creating marketing emails, or even blogging! The web without HTML and CSS would be would be a world without colourful, pretty websites, not to mention the web applications we all use daily. It’s easy to learn, and was designed so that everyone - even non-programmers - can do it. No fancy programs are needed, just Notepad and a web browser!

The Teens Learning Code Introduction to HTML & CSS workshop is designed to be a hands-on experience. During the session, you’ll learn:

  • Basic techniques and concepts that are translatable to other programming languages

  • The building blocks of how HTML and CSS work together to create richer online experiences

  • How to create a rich website with images, video, and a CSS-defined layout

  • What resources are available if you’d like to continue learning at home (and we think you will)


Who is this for?

Our Teens Learning Code workshops and events offer female-identified, trans, and non-binary youth ages 13-17 opportunities to take action on ideas that will shape our future while leveraging the power of technology. Our learning experiences are much more than learning how to code. Our experiences empower teens to learn problem solving skills, how to turn ideas into reality, exposure to what a future in technology could look like, and much more.

Our Teens Learning Code program specifically prioritizes girls (cis and trans) and non-binary individuals because these groups are currently underrepresented in the tech industry. Those who identify outside of these groups are welcome to attend, but should be aware that our effort has gone into meeting the unique needs of this program's target community.
