The Web Design Class covers all aspects of building websites from purely technical to business and graphics design. We use industry-standard Adobe CS3 applications and by the end of class, student teams have taken on and built functioning websites for organizations in our community.
The web design course has both a standard and an honors component. It can be taken multiple times by a student interested in the different aspects of web-based technology. The standard class focuses on static web sites, graphics, flash, and third party capabilities. The final project is a team built website for a local business or non-profit entity. The honors version focuses on creating interactive web-based content using the Model-View-Controler architecture via Google App Engine. The honors version requires a 4th generation programming class as a prerequisite.

Our Weather Station!
The 2010 web design class assembled and mounted a web-enabled weather station on the high school. It now streams data to a variety of online services. The "weather sticker" above is courtesy of www.wunderground.com, one of those services.
