About the book
Using a great storyline and delightful images, Create Your First Website in easy steps will teach key aspects of building a website. Join the gang at Earth’s most famous space centre, and follow their quest to design a website to power a new planet.
Along the way children will learn how to:
- Master HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) basics:
- Page Titles
- Page Headings
- Page Structure
- Build their new website. Children will only need a computer or a laptop, a text editor, a web browser, and an internet connection.
A supporting website (www.thequestkids.com) provides them with downloadable resources and additional interactive learning. The coding steps are shown in the familiar In Easy Steps style, and presented in child-friendly language. By the end of the book, children will have a fully-functional website and a great book to refer back to for future projects.
