The web is our digital world. Everyone can code it.
Providing free STEAM resources for teachers and students learning to code.
STEAMcoded.org - STEM, Art, and learning to code.
STEAMcoded.org is about coding web graphics. Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is a web standard markup language that works in all browsers.
There is nothing to install; Edit a file, Save it, and Open it in a browser.
SVG is visual, fun, and easy to learn. It can be as simple as coding basic shapes, yet still has a depth of mathematics that can challenge at any age.
The lesson plans were developed while teaching 4th-8th graders coding with SVG. Most images are drawn on a grid to help the student visualize what is happening as they add new shapes to their SVG code.
STEAMcoded.org is founded by Jay Nick. Jay is a retired electrical engineer and Coulee Region RSVP Volunteer teaching students to code. He has created the content on this site and has written and self-published several free, SVG centric eBooks. He is a contributor to http://openclipart.org, a great source of free SVG images.
Jay has also created and published other free eBooks with handcoded SVG images: Learn SVG Interactively, I Love to Doodle, I Love to Color, Play, & Learn, and A New Day. Additionally, Jay has been involved in publishing free eBooks for children, written by Barbara Nick. They are available from Catto Creations.
Jay is available to speak or conduct workshops as author, illustrator, and self-publisher about SVG, coding, and/or publishing. Publishing is relevant here as eBooks use web technology for their content. Use the link on the left to contact him or on twitter @jjaynick.
