In Unit 2, you’ll learn how to create and share the content on your own web pages. After deciding what content you want to share with the world, you’ll learn how to structure and style your pages using HTML and CSS. You’ll also practice valuable programming skills such as debugging and commenting. By the end of the unit, you’ll have a personal website that you can publish to the Internet.

#2 Careers in Tech
#3 WHAT FLOATS YOUR BOAT?
The class works in groups to design aluminum foil boats that will support as many pennies as possible. At the end of the lesson groups reflect on their experiences with the activity and make connections to the types of problem solving they will be doing for the rest of the course. (LEARNING TARGET)
Students will implement and collaborate on the concept and application of the problem solving process.
Reflective on their Aluminum Boat
Students will the Problem Solving Process DEEPER
Student Reflection Activity
What makes a computer a computer? What is input & output?
What is an Algorithm? Through 'Card Sorting', students will identify and experience the concept of what an algorithm is.
Students will identify information that computers store and how storage is a critical part of processing information. CARD CHALLENGES
Students will identify how apps process information in order to solve problems. APP EXPLORATION
Students will design and build their own app while applying the problem solving process (unplugged Lesson). PROJECT FORMAT
