Kids Learning Code at the YWCA

From YouTube, to Wikipedia, the websites we click on every single day all have one thing in common – HTML & CSS!

Kids Learning Code and YWCA Saskatoon are excited to announce an experience that offers kids the opportunity to leverage creativity to build an online web presence. The workshop will focus on reading and writing HTML & CSS using a tool called Mozilla Thimble, an easy-to-use online web making platform that allows for live previewing while coding.

In this workshop, kids will learn HTML & CSS basics by hacking pre-existing text, links, images, and videos on various templates, and then use their skills to create their very own webpage from scratch! Fundamental concepts of code, such as divs, classes and ids will enforce organization and prepare kids to continue creating – both at home and at school.

Is this workshop right for you?
This is a beginner workshop for Kids ages 8-13 who are new to HTML & CSS.

What is Kids Learning Code? 
Founded by the same women who introduced Ladies Learning Code and Girls Learning Code in 2012, Kids Learning Code is less about “code” and more about changing the world – through teamwork, creativity, and, of course, technology, while leveraging team diversity.

Note: this workshop is BYOL so each parent or guardian/youth pair is required to bring one laptop on the day of the workshop, however, YWCA Saskatoon and LLC Saskatoon have a limited number of laptops that can be borrowed if the participants do not have access to a machine. If you would like to borrow a computer for use during this workshop, please send a request to saskatoon@ladieslearningcode.com and wait for a confirmation e-mail.
