Get stickers

53 years ago, 100,000 people gathered in San Francisco for the Summer of Love.

Welcome to the Summer of Making.

It’s not an event or program. It’s a theme for the summer, a challenge to every teenager reading this: What will you make?

To suppport you, we’re distributing $50,000 in free electronics (thanks GitHub!) & building Snapchat streaks for coding—but really Summer of Making is about you. If this will be the best summer ever, it’ll be because of what you choose to hack on & learn from.

Free hardware from GitHub.

GitHub is sponsoring $50k worth of hardware grants for student makers, alongside support from Adafruit & Arduino for gear.

Hardware grants

Make it physical.

We want hardware hackers of any experience and no experience—whether it’ll be your first time soldering or your thousandth. Any 1) Plausible, 2) Cost-Effective, and 3) Inspired idea is eligible.

Apply for hardware
scrapbook.hackclub.com

Share your daily progress.

As you learn & make projects, share short photo/video updates each day & build a streak. You can even put custom CSS all over your profile & use your domain.

See what everyone’s making

Since I can light up my 2 nixies I can't turn them off as I spend too much time admiring their beauty. But the code doesn't handle 2 nixies so I added something so every 10 seconds it switch between displaying minutes and hour. Why only 2? because it's the size of the prototype and wiring 22 wires is already hard enough. Will soon start on designing the PCB and hopefully get it very soon to start soldering everything and bring it to life! Note: the entire clock is powered only from USB-C and that's cool af honestly, and soon I'll see my grandfather who worked with nixie tubes in the 70' so I can't wait to show him! :)
