HOST YOUR OWN MOONHACK EVENT

Help educate and inspire more kids to give coding a go, and have real impact.

HOW IS MOONHACK 2020 DIFFERENT?

A lot is happening in the world right now. After a devastating summer, we built these projects hoping that kids could think about sustainability changes they could make in their own life.

We still want this. But now, we’re simply hoping that you’ll join us from your home – virtually, with your family, Code Club, or online class.

The world seems strange right now, so we hope that Moonhack 2020 can bring us all together, and provide an hour or so of entertainment for kids and families.

Submitting your project is optional this year. We’d love to see what you make using the link above!

Look after yourself, wash your hands, stay (virtually) connected and look after each other.

HOW DO I BECOME A HOST?

Moonhackathons are for any household, library or school that want to organise a group to participate in Moonhack.

These are independently held events, not managed by Code Club. Don’t worry! We have some simple steps to get you to the moon and back!

STEP 1

PLAN

Moonhack 2020 is virtual! How will you connect with your Club or class around Moonhack online?

STEP 2

TECH TEST

Check your tech! What platform are you using, will the kids work collaboratively?

STEP 3

FACILITATE

How will you lead your Moonhackathon? Will you teach, or bring the kids together for a showcase?

STEP 4

DEBRIEF

Submit your project, download your certificate and celebrate!

*Submission is optional this year, so don’t stress if you can’t collect every child’s project!

If you’re hosting a virtual Moonhack, have a think about how to make sure your event is digitally inclusive.

  • Will kids need devices and consistent internet?
  • Can they do one of our offline activities?

Check out our blog for information on coding offline and unplugged. Extra downloads are available on the project page too!

WHO IS CODE CLUB?

Code Club is a nationwide network of volunteer-led coding clubs with a mission to #getkidscoding! We are a charity with the aim of giving every child the skill, confidence and opportunity to shape their world.

All Code Clubs are free to join, and are supported by volunteers, parents, educators and our partners.

WHO IS MOONHACK FOR?

Moonhack is for all children. From first time coders to coding wizz-kids, we have a Moonhack project to progress them on their coding journey.

You don’t have to be a part of a Code Club, CoderDojo or other group to participate.

Moonhack is designed for anyone who is curious to give coding a try. We also want to inspire those familiar with coding to create and share their best work!
