Looking for hackathons?

Welcome to the high school hackathon.

It's not an extracurricular or a club. It's not a class or a lecture. Hackathons are a place to build things for fun and meet others doing the same.

A hackathon is a social coding marathon where teenagers come together to build projects for a weekend and share them with the world.

The best way to learn is by building.
A hackathon is a space that helps give makers everything they need to start building–mentors, collaborators, inspiration, and a goal to work towards. Hackers will leave a hackathon with a project of their own, ready and excited to keep hacking once they get home.

We're at our best when we're making.
Hack Club is a global community of thousands of high school makers. We're organizers, coders, hackers, painters, engineers, musicians, writers, volunteers. We make things. We want others to make things too.

Join other high-schoolers at an upcoming hackathon.
