“APIs with JavaScript”

Time: 9:15 AM – 3:15 PM

Description: Students will use HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (jQuery) to create their very own web application. We will learn how to use APIs to receive live data from the internet and display the data on a web page. Students will choose between many APIs, including (but not limited to) the CTA Bus Tracker, NASA’s Astronomy Photo of the Day, Chicago crime data, and live weather data. The final web applications will be hosted on Glitch, making them freely available on the internet. Although previous experience with HTML/CSS would be helpful, no experience is necessary!

Take Home: A unique web application (of the student’s choosing) that receives and displays live data.
