Prize-Winning Websites from Year 7-9 Computer Science
As we mentioned in a previous post, the students in Mr Kemp’s Year 7-9 Computer Science classes have been learning how to build modern websites. With more and more people accessing the internet from their mobile phones, the students learned how to make sites that will change their layout on smaller screens. We have hosted four of the best sites made by the students on a server in Hong Kong and have included links below. These sites were entirely written by the students and will open in WeChat, your phone browser, or laptop/desktop computer. Here at YCIS Chongqing, we believe that our students need to understand the technologies that shape the world around us and are proud of the talent and creativity shown in these websites.
