In this unit, students are introduced to website design. Students are given the task of creating two websites--one for a business, and one that is "interest-based" designed to create traffic flow to their site. Students are then competing to get "hired" as web designers.
First time students learn to make websites using wix.com; repeat students choose between wix, GoDaddy, or coding their own website.
When possible, students are evaluated by outside experts.

What Should My Website Have?
A big thanks to Nick & Heather Gooch for often serving as our interview panel for when the students have to make their pitches for their websites.
