We’ve finished updating Code Club’s HTML & CSS curriculum, which now contains 12 new projects! These new projects each introduce web design concepts through fun, engaging activities.
The new projects make use of Trinket to create and share webpages online. Trinket offers several advantages over using a text editor offline. As well as seeing a live preview of their code, children can save and share their webpages online, and can remix webpages shared by others. This can also be achieved without a login, via uniquely generated Trinket urls.
Here are a couple of our favourite projects:
Build a Robot: In this project, children will learn about CSS positioning by building their own robot from various components.
For example, the following CSS would position the robot’s eyes by setting its width, as well as its position from the top and the left of the browser window:
Linked Rooms: Children learn how to use image hyperlinks to move between webpages by creating a separate page for each room, using doors to move between rooms. Each room can also be styled using its own CSS.
The projects can be found at codeclubprojects.org. As usual, we’d really welcome your feedback via email (email@example.com), Github or through the feedback link at the end of each individual project. Let us know what you think!
