Cornell University Library staff taught high school students from across New York state how to design and code user-friendly websites during a 4-H event on campus June 27-29.
The 4-H event aimed to expose middle and high school students to various career paths and academic fields in collaborative and hands-on settings.
“The library plus every big tech company, such as Facebook and Google, uses these user-centered design methods,” said Darcy Branchini, manager of Cornell's Land Grant IT and one of the workshop’s coordinators. “It’s pivotal to better understanding users and addressing their needs when developing an application.”
