Why is my Javascript code not working?

Path Finder
<!DOCTYPE html>
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
.accordion {
    background-color: #002B51;
    color: white;
    cursor: pointer;
    padding: 18px;
    width: 40%;
    border: none;
    text-align: left;
    outline: none;
    font-size: 15px;
    transition: 0.4s;

.active, .accordion:hover {
    background-color: #2d8dd5;

.accordion:after {
    content: '\002B';
    color: white;
    font-weight: bold;
    float: right;
    margin-left: 5px;


.active:after {
    content: "\2212";


.panel {
    padding: 0 18px;
    background-color: silver;
    max-height: 0;
    overflow: hidden;
    transition: max-height 0.2s ease-out;
width: 35.7%


<button class="accordion">Lifecycle Hygiene

<div class="panel">
  <p>Lifecycle Hygiene </p>

var acc = document.getElementsByClassName("accordion");
var i;

for (i = 0; i < acc.length; i++) {
  acc[i].addEventListener("click", function() {
    var panel = this.nextElementSibling;
    if (panel.style.maxHeight){
      panel.style.maxHeight = null;
    } else {
      panel.style.maxHeight = panel.scrollHeight + "px";


Everything is fine, except the list should by dropped down by the Jquary code on the script section. not sure why id doesn't get executed.
