The rundown

High school clubs for creative coding.

Hack Clubs at high schools meet weekly (this year, via Zoom), typically for 1.5hrs after school. As a club leader, you get members (mostly beginners) started on something to learn/create, then members work at their own pace, building websites, apps, & games, and presenting them at the end.

A group of students—many beginners—gather to start coding.The leader (that’s you!) presents for a few minutes, getting the group started building something new.

2

Everyone gets hacking, individually. Not hacking bank accounts—being creative & making something awesome with code.

3

To end, everyone demos their work.As a leader, you’re cultivating a community of makers. Each member showing off their work builds momentum & motivation.

Go beyond club meetings.

Hack Clubs attend and run hackathons like Windy City Hacks & Hack the Fog, run summer programs like Hack Camp, and compete in events like the Congressional App Challenge. The hack’s the limit.

~ Philosophy ~

By the students, for the students.

Learning to code is uniquely like gaining a superpower—turning you from a consumer of technology into a creator. So it shouldn’t be taught like a class—it should be a creative, inclusive space. To foster this environment, every Hack Club is student-led & members make self-directed projects.
