Kids Learning Code Webmaking with HTML & CSS (Parent/Child)

  • Fort Saskatchewan Public Library (map)

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

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!
