What is HTML?

HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) is the language used to write web pages that consist of codes (tags) embedded in the text of a document. It provides structure to a webpage.


Summer 2016


YWiC taught HTML to the new high school campers during the 2016 summer camps. During this camp students were taught the most recent version of HTML (HTML 5) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) which is used in the design and formatting of HTML. The lesson began by going over the presentation which is an overview of HTML 5 and CSS and includes some coding challenges in which campers got to try out what they had just learned. Students were then given a cheat sheet over HTML 5 and CSS and were able to work on their own website. All resources used in these lesson can be found here.


Summer 2013

YWiC introduced HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) in Summer 2013 in a middle school camp. The whole platform takes 3-4 hours, depending on student’s ability to learn the concepts.

Instruction began with a powerpoint. While looking at the powerpoint, mini projects were given. The instructors guided the students. After they finished, they must complete a website, and a special project.
