Digital literacy is so important for today’s world, and the sooner students learn even the smallest amount of coding, the better!Our mission is to make coding and programming accessible to high school students, which is why our program is free! Your mission is to learn how to code and build a game where you can play yourself using a dose of artificial intelligence. Sound cool? It is. Sound overwhelming? Don’t be afraid, just try it! It’s not as scary as you think. Plus you can be as creative as you like!

No experience necessary

Project-based and fun

Implement the HackHighSchool curriculum anywhere for free!

Together we provide

The HackHighSchool curriculum is designed to be implemented easily elsewhere. It’s low-cost, scalable program that requires minimal resources. It’s a tool to help any teacher offer computer science education with in-person support and learning so you can offer coding education to your students.

Who provides what

42 provides our gamified education platform, project-based coding curriculum, IT support for automated aspects, and education and training on our peer-to-peer pedagogy. You’ll need to provide enrollment, communication/marketing about the program, and logistics for student/parent needs. You’ll also need a meeting space and computers as well as mentors (we might be able to help make connections.)

For more information

Schools and coding groups are already implementing the high school curriculum based on our Saturday Coding Camp called HackHighSchool. For more information, please contact Sangita Nath, our HackHighSchool Program Director, by email.
