Let's get social!

Try out Hackergal's Tech-Tac-Toe Menu!

Hackergal’s virtual Tech-Tac-Toe Menu includes both coding activities and other tech tools (ie. how to create online surveys or creatively design online visuals). Our tech menu is designed to be tackled independently or virtually with a friend! You can challenge a friend to see who created a row first out of the nine options available.

Accept a #HackergalUnplugged Challenge!

Did you know you can learn about code without your devices?! Super cool! Each of our #HackergalUnplugged coding activities will teach YOU the basic concepts of coding without needing a screen. Unplug, get active, and try an activity at home!

Hackergal’s virtual coding clubs are in session for all our participating schools!
