During this 6-week intensive program, high school girls will expand their CSS and web design skills as they curate and build an online collection. Throughout the program, scholars will gain behind-the-scenes insight, meeting with Museum staff and influential women in technology fields while researching and writing about an artifact of their interest from the Museum collections. They will leave the program with a collaboratively developed site and a deeper understanding of CSS design principles and HTML. Scholars entering the program should have foundational HTML and CSS skills.

Upcoming Program Dates:

  • Saturdays, October 13-November 17, 2018, 9 am – 12 pm
