Join the Global Hacker Movement

High school students have started taking charge of their own computer science education. One of them, Zach Latta, an 18-year-old who was named to Forbes’ “30 Under 30” list for 2016, has helped to create Hack Club, a network of coding groups that have spread to 12 states and six countries so far. The purpose is to get students coding regardless of background or prior technical knowledge. A Hack Club starts like any robotics team or chess club, with most schools requiring a teacher sponsor to donate a classroom after school, generally twice a week for 90 minutes. Hack Club is creating a space for students to explore and learn in a way that focuses on making and building, which can draw in students who would otherwise be turned off by the intensiveness that programming classes normally require.
