In this 4-week introductory module, kids dive into the world of web-based technologies as they get their hands dirty with HTML, CSS and explore the universe of Github and more.
We start off by learning about the Internet, from how clients and servers play a part to how information is able to travel through it. The kids will be able to explain what a client, server and DNS servers are. They will be able to understand what happens when a search is run on google.com. They are then briefly introduced to GitHub and repl.it, in preparation for their project.
Combining these knowledge with their newly acquired skills with web development and styling tools, kids will then engage their creativity in a personal project to build their personal wiki and portfolio site, to wrap up this module on the world wide web.
