Hack Club + Girl Scouts of Greater NY present...

Manhattan, NYC

Horizon is a magical one day coding party!

Horizon is a social coding event where teens come together for a day to discover the joy of code, build creative projects and share their projects with the world.

Hack Club is a worldwide community of high school hackers. We’re artists, writers, engineers, tinkerers, campers, filmmakers, volunteers. We make things. We help one another. We have fun.

Horizon is fully open source, and funded and run by the Hack Club community, as well as the Girl Scouts of Greater New York. Hack Clubbers are organizing Horizon in public on the Hack Club Slack and with fully transparent finances using Hack Club Bank. Everything from this website to Horizon's dinner menu was created by teenagers just like yourself, and you're welcome to help out in #horizon on the Slack!

Am I eligible to participate in Horizon?

This event is open to Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors. Girl Scouts can sign up on the GSGNY registration page. (Register here!)

Questions about cost/aid?

This event is free to Hack Clubbers. Girl Scouts should reach out to stem@girlscoutsnyc.org to learn more.

Can I join if I've never coded before?

This hackathon is for hackers of all skill levels! It's completely beginner-friendly. In fact, we'll have workshops and other events, so join us and let's learn together. If you'd like to start exploring some introductory projects, check out Hack Club Workshops.

What do I need to bring to Horizon?

Bring a laptop if you have one, and also bring a water bottle! Lunch and snacks will be provided by Girl Scouts.

I have questions...

What can I make at Horizon?

Girl Scouts can create projects for their Highest Awards! You can create a website, an app, or anything else that will help you take action in your community-whether that's promoting a cause, educating about an issue, or solving a problem. As a bonus, everyone will take home a special patch from this day!
Check out what Hack Clubbers are making every day!
