Course Description

In Webpages with HTML & CSS, the third course of Wizard Level 1 in our middle school program, students begin their web development journey. They’ll learn two new coding languages essential for building websites: HTML & CSS. HTML allows students to structure webpage content, while CSS affects the layout and styling. After finishing this course, students will have a solid foundation in building basic websites. They’ll use this knowledge in the next course of our structured curriculum: the middle school Wizard Level 1 Capstone course.
