Frequently Asked Questions

Who can participate in the program?

The program is intended for people above 13 who are attending either a middle school or high school anywhere in the world. Too young? We can make exceptions on a case-by-case basis. Feel free to reach out!

My school starts while the program is going on. Can I still participate in the program?

For sure! Since the program is virtual, you should still be able to — and in fact, are encouraged to — work on the project once school resumes. That being said, we expect that you devote 100% effort throughout the program.

I am going to a summer camp during the program. Can I still participate?

Certainly! Just make sure that you’ll be able to dedicate time to the project every week throughout the program.

How will participants be meeting with mentors?

This program is 100% online, you'll be meeting through video call.

How are participants paired with mentors?

Accepted participants will be paired with an industry expert mentor who shares similar interests. Want to make a cool video game? You’ll be paired with someone who is experienced with game design!

Who is running the competition?

The program is being run by Hack Club, a non profit network of computer science clubs where members learn to code through tinkering and building projects. It is the biggest such network and has gained the attention of tech luminaries like Elon Musk!
