From January to February 2011 I taught a web design class at East Harlem Tutorial Program. Here the students learned what it takes to build and develop a website.
They did everything from researching, then sketching out and outlining the site, to diving into Photoshop to lay out a mock up and then learning basic HTML and CSS to actually build the site. Although they did not completely build the new ehtprobotics.org, the point of the class was for them to understand what goes into developing a site. I am also teaching them how to keep it up to date so that they can do it themselves (since it is powered by WordPress).
The Warriors of East Harlem, Team #1880 is a FIRST Robotics team from East Harlem Tutorial Program. I have been working with the students as a mentor and helping them with their 3D Animations, website, and chairman’s award video. Please check out the site for the latest on the team. They First Robotics Competition is at the Jacob Javits Center on March 11th-13th, 2011. Good Luck Team 1880!
