We are NOW accepting applications for the Winter 2021 session. 

We are NOT teaching Unity for Winter 2021 due to the pandemic. We understand that not everyone has a computer that can run Unity. We have moved Unity to Fall 2021.


What are we doing?

Hello Code is coming to Make.Hack.Build. Hello Code is a program we offer adults that teaches coding through HTML & CSS over the course of a few weeks. For this winter session of MHB, we are teaching teens how to create web applications with HTML, CSS, and Javascript. You will also learn design basics for creating websites, web tools, and web games. 

For the safety of our staff and our members, classes will be online via Zoom. You will need a computer and access to internet to attend. 

When is it?

Our winter session will be held over twelve Saturdays from 1-3pm starting on Saturday, January 23rd with the last meetup on Saturday, April 17. 

Who can apply?

Anyone between the ages of 12 to 18 who is interested in inventing technologies that solve real-world problems is encouraged to apply. Twelve applicants will be accepted for the upcoming Winter 2020 session.

What skills do I need?

All you need is some basic computer skills, like navigating the internet, and a “whatever it takes” attitude! No programming or game experience necessary. 

How will participants be selected?

  • We will consider all eligible participants who have completed the online application form before the upcoming session.
