What is a Hackathon?

A Hackathon is a social coding event—and Days of Service is Hack Club's initiative to support girls learning to code by hosting gender-focused Hackathons as an opportunity for girls to build awesome projects!

Working with local youth organizations, high school Hack Club leaders run one-day coding events (a day of service) that help girls and gender minorities write their first lines of code. They might build their first ever website, video game, application, or even code a robot arm to draw out their sketches!

Built for beginners learning to code, girls are supported by experienced Hack Clubbers. By the end of the day, every single participant builds something with code. In 2023, Hack Club girls ran Days of Service in 6 cities, and in 2024 they'll increase events to more than 10 cities.


A track is a series of workshops for a specific coding subject that you will learn about during the hackathon!

Generate Robot Art with Blot

In this workshop, participants will learn to create computer-generated art by drawing assorted shapes from our guides. They'll use Blot, a robotic arm created by Hack Club that translates code to creation. With this track, attendees will learn JavaScript and digitial fabrication. Afterwards, they'll be shipped their own robot arm to draw what they've created!

Design a Circuit Board with OnBoard

In this workshop, participants will learn the fundamentals of circuit board design with Hack Club's OnBoard program. They'll use EasyEDA, a circuit design software, to complete this. Attendees will learn to use that software as well as the basics of PCB design. After students complete this track, they'll be shipped their PCB to have a physical copy of their creation!

Build a 3D Village with Spline

In this workshop, participants learn the fundamentals of 3D modeling by building their own 3D village. They'll use Spline, a web-based 3D design tool, to accomplish this. Spline allows them to add interactivity and customize their design. With this track, attendees learn the basics of working in 3D, which can be used for websites, games, animation, and printing!

How much does attendance cost?

Attendance is free thanks to Hack Club's support!

What is Evergreen?

Evergreen is a Days of Service event that aims to teach teens how to code and build their own projects.

What if I've never coded before?

That's perfectly okay! We will have workshops to teach you!

What should I bring?

You should bring a laptop, but we will have Chromebooks available if you don't have a laptop.

Will I need a team?

You can work by yourself or in a team! The goal is to create something that you're proud of.

Where does Evergreen take place?

Evergreen will take place at the Amazon HQ in Seattle.

What if I am not from the Renton School District?

That's totally okay! Any high schooler can attend.

My parents or I have another question.

No worries! Contact nila@hackclub.com with any questions you may have.
