Description

The IT Kidz Code Clubs are after school computer clubs Online. In this Code Club we will be building on what the children have previously learned about HTML & CSS to build a website. We will be taking those initial concepts and exploring new and more creative ways to write and style our webpages. The finished project from this code club with be a Website designed by the children about their Country.

HTML & CSS are the foundation of the web, and as such are excellent first programming languages to learn, and will pave the way to making learning languages such as JavaScript, PHP, and Ruby a whole lot easier.

Learning HTML and CSS help children visualise and articulate abstract ideas effectively. In this way, a child finds it easy to employ arithmetic to tackle and solve real-world problems. Also maths starts to become fun and interesting every day.
