Event Details

Does your child have an idea for their very own website or want to learn how to create one?

Maybe they’ve got an idea for a how-to website for their favorite video game. A book review blog where they can write about their favorite sci-fi fantasy reads. A babysitting site to get hired!

Or perhaps they just want to learn how to tinker around online and build something from nothing.

Over 3 days, I’ll show the class how to use Wix, a free web-building platform, to bring their vision to life.

In this workshop-style camp, your child will build their first website and specifically:

+ Get clear on what their site is for & who their visitors are

+ Choose a template OR blank slate as their launchpad for creativity

+ Choose a fun color scheme

+ Find fonts

+ Find imagery

+ Learn how to build on Wix (the free platform we’ll be using)

+ Lay out their Homepage

+ Lay out a Navigation menu

+ Make sure their site works on mobile phones

+ Have the chance to show off their site and what they’ve been working on for 3 days!

And we will…

+ take plenty of “Brain Breaks” for snack, dance, yoga, and games… never a dull moment!

+ have daily discussion on the responsibilities of digital citizenship and how to use media for good manners and good health.

+ for those who finish their site early: learn to design their own business cards (to be printed at home or sent to an online printer) so they can pass to friends and family to direct traffic to their brand new site!
