The world is rapidly digitalizing, and technology and the Internet of Things (IoTs) have influenced various aspects of our lives. The increasing desire for automation and technology-focused invention ideas has also expanded creativity in our education system.

Gone are the days when children used to carry loads of homework notebooks or heavy school project files.

Schools are now using online platforms to assign projects to students, reducing the hassle of managing multiple hard copies and providing a hands-on learning experience for students.

This shift towards digital mediums is transforming the way we learn and teach.

Now, keeping this in mind, there is a crucial aspect of this new development that this blog intends to focus on. That is ‘how to make a website for school projects.

Whether you are a student or a parent, this blog will give you all the necessary details.

The Process of Website Creation

The Process of Website Creation

So firstly, there are different reasons why your teacher might have asked you to create a website instead of the same old notebooks or files for the school project.

One is that the website could itself be a project. This way, teachers try to invoke creativity and passion in students toward technology.

Secondly, creating a website for school projects ensures a proper database of every child’s work done throughout their school years, which they can even present or take reference from in later years of their career, somewhat like a website portfolio.

Now, let’s learn the easy steps to make a website for a school project.

1. Define Your Purpose and Vision

When you are assigned a task to create a website for a school project, the first step includes brainstorming. Brainstorming is the ideation part, where you decide what kind of website you want to create. It could be the one with a photo gallery, more text, or even a mix of different elements.

2. Select the Platform

Website development can be done in different ways: one uses free/paid online platforms that offer pre-designed templates, and the other builds a website from scratch using HTML and CSS, i.e., coding.

3. Decide the Mode of Development

If the students are new to computer learning, they might not have the proper understanding of coding; in that case, it is feasible to use pre-designed website templates such as wordpress, Squarespace, Wix, etc. However, students of higher sections can even try their hands on HTML and CSS-based coding.

Building Websites Using Coding

  • Get a text editor like Notepad++ or Sublime Text 3 to start developing your website. Then, start learning HTML and CSS.
  • Create a desktop folder and right-click it to configure the website files.
  • Select New > Rich Text Document, give the file a new name (index.html), and then save and close the file. To start coding, open the newly created HTML file in your new text editor.
  • Plan and wireframe your website once you’ve mastered the fundamentals and experimented with HTML code. Instead of starting with intricate designs, start with simpler websites and work up to a more complicated one.

Building Websites Using Online Platforms

  • If you’re looking to quickly set up a basic website for a few dollars or even free, consider using online tools like Squarespace or WordPress.
  • To create a website, create an account on the chosen platform and select a template/theme. Then, add and edit content, i.e., images and texts, according to your project.
  • This method is less time-consuming than coding and can be completed in a few hours.

4. Test It Thoroughly

Once you are done creating the website, it is very important to test it for any errors properly. Make sure to test-run the website or preview it on different devices. After all, the devil is in the details! So make sure tiny errors don’t cost you those good marks.

5. Publish the website

One mistake people often make while creating websites is that once they finish the layout and setup, they assume people can access their website, but this is not the case. Once you finish the website creation, you must make it live or publish it. Websites must be updated regularly for new additions per your academics, etc.


So you see, making a website for school projects isn’t as tedious a task as it sounds. Need a quick revision? Here’s your easy checklist: Brainstorm; Choose Platform; Build Basic Wireframe; Add Information/Content; Check For Errors; Publish.

It is one of the most fun and innovative ways to assign school projects. This way, children can be made ready for the future in a fun and engaging manner.

Think of it this way: when it comes to website-based school projects, not only will the children feel free to showcase their creativity hassle-free, but they won’t be afraid to make mistakes or do trial and error.

Thus building their sense of self-evaluation. Websites or dealing with technology are things that every school curriculum must introduce to ignite a passion for innovation in children at an early stage.
