High school and middle school students in the web design course learn first-hand how websites are designed and created, and explore what makes a good user experience. Led by professional web designers, students discover the principles of successful UX (user experience) design, exercise creative project planning, create beautiful visual designs, and bring their designs to life in a final interactive website. No prior design or coding experience is necessary for this program.
The web design course for high school students and middle school students also includes the basics of the language behind the web, HTML and CSS, along with planning and visual design aspects of web design. Students interested in more experience with web programming should consider the Web Development Summer Program, either separately, or as a next step upon completion of this course. This web design class is offered for one week only each year in the summer.
