Most Enjoyable Parts — My Favorites
Experience After the Project Was Complete
When we finished our project, I felt pride in what I had done. After all, I’d learned throughout the project and felt more positive feelings, such as being more intelligent. Excitement also filled me since I knew I could make buttons, style anything I wanted, and make images spin around or fade in and out whenever I wanted!
Our Final Presentation
Firstly, I don’t like presenting in front of parents(other adults or friends are fine with me). And the fact that my mom was there made me slightly angry and very nervous. So, my face froze, but my mouth moved! When I started presenting with my fellow project-mate Noah(and the teacher) on the slides, I tried to rush a bit to get over this whole nervous-racking presentation thing. But I had a bit of fun putting animations onto the slides, adding color, and changing fonts. Finally, after our team finished the presentation, I felt like an ice cube in an oven. As a result, the presentation wasn’t relaxing, but I mostly enjoyed the whole project.
Creating Designs on Canva
To be honest, making designs on Canva isn’t something you can make in a couple of minutes. I had to brainstorm what theme or kind of style I had to build. Also, you need to make something visible clearly with your eyes. Third, I needed precise colors and fonts to match the theme. Lastly, you have to make sure it looks nice. It won’t look great if it has a bit too much or few accessories.
Any Advice for Other Newbie Coders?
Coding can be challenging, but don’t give up. From what I learned, you can be proud of it. And the best advice for a beginner is to finish your homework and listen to the teacher. Remember, your parents paid for these lessons, so you better make it worth it!

Favorite- Fun Parts of the Project
During the project, I had a lot of favorite parts. The most enjoyable parts of the journey were adding some styles to the pokemon website and features like the footer and the pokemon list. I also liked making the image for my website on canva.com.
The challenging parts we faced in this project were very annoying because when we sometimes misspelled a word, we had to skim through like 30 lines of code just to find one tiny error, for example, a term we misspelled, didn’t close a tag, and we forgot to close a semicolon.
Our Experience Changed With Coding After Doing This Project
After I finished my project, I mostly felt proud of myself because it took so long to make the pokemon website. I also felt more confident in coding because, through the season, I learned how to push buttons and any style I wanted, and I could also make images spin around.
Our Final Presentation
Our final presentation was on the website called slides and was mainly about how the project was. Ultimately, we shared our final presentation with our parents, so doing it in front of them was very uncomfortable. On the other hand, I enjoyed our presentation with my classmate, Jooah Lee, who lives in Los Angeles.
Making Designs on Canva
Canva is a website where you can make posters and stuff like that; we used Canva for making our logos for our website. In this case, my logo for my website is Zapdos on a black background which says pokemon flashcards, and I made that all from Canva. Also, some of the styles in Canva aren’t free, and the ones that aren’t free are outstanding designs.
Any Advice for Newbie Coders?
When you start coding, it may be challenging, but don’t lose hope. As I did coding, I made many mistakes, but those mistakes were good, so don’t be sad if you make one. Try to be proud of it and learn from your mistakes. And as you start to code for an extended period, you won’t have much trouble doing it because you already know how to fix your errors.

Mustard Gangsters Team (Jooah & Noah)
Scribble.io was fun, to be honest. We were very competitive while trying to draw on the computer. It was mostly hard to draw since our pointer kept sliding off. It was also because the topic was challenging or we didn’t know what the case was.
Two truths and one lie were epic. Jooah tried to lie about weird topics. Noah tried to lie with numbers as he lives on the 5th floor, but it was the first. It was also fun how we guessed the teachers’ lies and also learned more about each other.
Team Name Brainstorming
Coming up with a team name was pretty fun. We first chose some names we could use: Ketchup criminals, Nut bandits, Viola Villains, Mustard gangsters, Pokelords, Pokequesters, Rebelmons, Star Stompers, and Poke Fun. Ultimately, we voted on which name should be our team name. And Mustard gangsters somehow got voted for most, so we decided our team name would be Mustard gangsters!
Team’s final presentation recording:
Be it during troubleshooting sessions where we helped each other with spotting the bugs, giving feedback on website styling aesthetics, or being patient if our team member was taking longer to grasp one particular concept than ourselves, Jooah and Noah were a team that was a lot of fun for me to teach. Even during icebreaker sessions like Skribbl.io, we were as supportive of each other as we were competitive.
