In this web design summer camp, students will learn how to code and design modern responsive websites. Students spend time learning how to design websites using Sketch. After learning how to mock up a website using their newly learned design tools, student move onto to learning how to implement those changes via code.
Students start by learning how to build a basic web page using HTML and CSS. Students quickly move onto more advanced coding techniques learning how to style and layout the page with Flexbox and Grid. Once students are able to master these coding languages they will be able to bring their designs to real life!
After learning new skills and techniques in class, students reinforce important concepts by developing their own final project at home, with tons of instructor guidance along the way!
