Mission 1 – Build a Web Page Program

We will be using the Get Coding book by the Young Rewired State, a worldwide community of digital-makers aged 18 and under.

The Get Coding! book will not only teach you how to code, but also show you how fun and exciting it can be.

Coding is one of the most important skills young people can learn and there’s never been a better time to master it.

Together with the Get Coding! book and access to the www.getcodingkids.com website, we will learn how to code using three (3) essential programming languages:

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • Javascript

HTML, CSS & Javascript are three of the most important programming languages in the world. They are used by web developers to build the websites and web-based apps and games you use everyday.

In the workshops, following the book, you will learn real-life coding skills you can use to do all kinds of programming.

Get Coding! Workshops

There are six (6) exciting missions in Get Coding!. Our mission is to work through as a group each of the missions and learn how to code HTML, CSS & Javascript.

Mission 1: Build a Webpage

In Mission 1 you are going to learn how to code in the programming languages HTML and CSS. Start off by learning what HTML is and how it works. Then use HTML tags to create a web page. Learn how to change the way your web page looks by coding paragraphs and line breaks, adding images and dividing your page into sections.

Then learn how you can use HTML with a new programming language called CSS. Change the layout and design of your web page by altering the colour, size and shape of your elements. Finally in the Do It Yourself Task use your new skills to build a web page of your own.
