This is a beginner level workshop for girls 8-13 years old and the motherly figure in their lives (mother/grandmother/guardian/aunt/older sibling).
This workshop experience offers girls the opportunity to learn how to use creativity to build an online web presence! The workshop will focus on the use of Mozilla Thimble, an easy-to-use online web making platform that allows for live previewing while coding. Girls will learn HTML and CSS basics by hacking pre-existing text, links, images, and videos on various templates, and then use their skills to create their very own fun business website from scratch (think ice-cream store, pet store, or any other fun real-world workplace!). Fundamental concepts of code, such as divs, classes and ids will enforce organization and prepare the girls to continue creating – at home and at school. Thimble also allows for easy sharing, so their awesome content can be shared with you and anyone with a link!
