Another popular course attended by five Excel students was, “Fan-Favorite Web Development: Build a Website About Your Fandom Using HTML/CSS”. They were able to put their new skills to use right away. During this course, they created personal webpages, practiced different coding methods, and conversed in HTML and CSS.
“I was able to learn about HTML and CSS while building a webpage in memory of my mother,” said Nautica Beckless, an Excel Englewood student.
Additionally, the summit provided students with the opportunity to meet with college recruiters who answered questions about higher education and the tech industry.
“Today was dope! This is something I thought I’d never experience being in the Google headquarters,” shared another Excel student, Josh Andrews.
To close out the day, students enjoyed lunch at the renowned Gus’s Fried Chicken, the reigning champion of the National Fried Chicken Festival.
