  • This class will be taught over 2 weeks (2 hours each night) on Monday & Wednesday evenings, February 6, 8, 13 and 15.

    JavaScript is the web's most popular programming language for a reason -- it's the primary way to build interaction on the web. Learning JavaScript is a logical next step once you've learned HTML/CSS. 

    Many programming courses end up glossing over some of the tricky words -- 'variable', 'object', 'function' -- this course is especially designed for beginners new to programming concepts, so you'll learn to program with JavaScript. If those words are confusing to you now, no worries! You're exactly who we want to teach.

    In this class, we will be covering: basic development concepts, writing our own JavaScript functions,browser events, web animation, and we will touch on the jQuery library. Students will exit this class with a good grasp of basic programming principles and the knowledge of how to manipulate HTML elements.

    This is an 8-hour class and it is recommended that you have previous knowledge of HTML and CSS. 

    Note: You are not required to take our introductory HTML class before taking this one, but it is recommended if you have no previous HTML/CSS experience.

    • Mon, Feb 6 from 5:30pm-7:30pm

    • Wed, Feb 8 from 5:30pm-7:30pm

    INSTRUCTOR: Jeffrey Saul

    Dr. Jeff Saul, Physics Ph.D, taught introductory undergraduate astronomy and physics for the over 20 years, most recently at the University of New Mexico.  In addition to teaching university students, he has also taught community college students including classes with 70% minority populations.  He conducts research on the teaching and learning of science and helped develop the SCALE-UP project which pioneered new classroom designs and curricula for teaching in an active-learning environment, where the primary teaching mode is learning by doing rather than learning by listening.  He has conducted active-learning workshops for K-12 teachers including offering Modeling Instruction workshops to middle school and high school teachers.  He has been coding for over 30 years including projects for teaching, physics experiments, astronomy experiments, and local businesses. He recently completed CNM’s Deep Dive Coding Bootcamp where he learned HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, Bootstrap, Angular, and mySQL.  He currently tutors math and science to local middle school, high school, and college students in addition to working freelance as a Web Developer and STEM Education consultant.

    *No shows: your course fee will be donated to the chapter scholarship fund.*
