HTML & CSS Coding Classes For Kids
Elementary School Classes
Children in elementary school have fun designing and developing webpages in HTML and CSS. Learning to code also helps them build typing skills and provides an introduction to computational thinking.
Kids move from block-based to text-based programming in this class and learn how to design and build their very own websites. After learning the structure of websites in HTML, like the div tag, image tag, and header tag, students then apply CSS styling, like color, backgrounds, and animations, to customize their own webpages.
Middle School Classes
Kids in middle school start coding with HTML and CSS to build their own websites with personalized designs and animations. Taking a coding class is a great way to develop analytical thinking and problem solving skills.
Kids in this class learn how to create stunning, interactive websites utilizing tools like jQuery, Ajax, flexbox, CSS, API interfaces, and cookies in addition to standard HTML and CSS. This is an intermediate class where students produce useful web applications as well as a portfolio-quality final project utilizing interfaces to several popular applications.
High School Classes
Teens who learn HTML and CSS have a jumpstart on preparing for college and career. These languages are an easy introduction to coding that can spark their interest in computer science and technology as well as providing them a tangible skill for the future.
Commonly asked questions about learning HTML / CSS.
What is HTML & CSS for kids?
HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is a programming language that defines the structure and elements of a website.
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is a programming language that formats HTML elements and adds styles to a website.
How do I teach HTML and CSS?
There are an abundance of resources for teaching HTML/CSS to children. Start with your child’s age and interests. You can choose from coding books, tutorials, videos, or coding classes. There are free and paid options at all levels, but using a free coding resource is a good way to dip your toe in and see if your child is interested.
Is HTML and CSS easy to learn?
HTML and CSS are two of the easiest languages to learn for kids and beginners. The syntax is simple and you can easily view the output in your browser. Unlike backend languages like Python and Java, you do not need to download any packages or run your code through a server, so it’s very easy to get started.
What should I learn first, HTML or CSS?
We advise learning HTML first. It will help kids build a foundation for how a site is structured and interpreted by a browser. A CSS file is added to an HTML page in order to format and style features of the HTML like color and size. Without an HTML page, the CSS code will have no effect.
