Coding Classes at Brillantmont International School: HTML and CSS

| 0 comments| by Sarah Frei Sarah Frei

The students of Brillantmont International School’s STEAM coding classes have been tackling some new and exciting programming language skills, as their studies dive deeper into how the web works, and the processes behind the sites and apps they use every day. To learn more about how websites work, the students have begun to create their own sites using the hypertext markup language (HTML).

 

We are focusing on how to create and format responsive websites that include buttons, forms, and design elements that work on multiple platforms. After covering the basics of HTML tags, such as inserting images and links, students are now moving onto Cascading Style Sheet formatting (CSS). CSS enables websites to look professional and consistent, no matter if it is seen on a phone, a tablet or a computer.
