β—πŸ•πŸ• PIZZA INCOMING: Host Hack Club meetings, get pizza for your club πŸ•πŸ•β—

What's better than coding with your friends? Eating pizza with your friends while you code! This semester, we're teaming up with GitHub to give every club $100 in FREE PIZZA. Starting today you can apply for your pizza grant at #pizza-party in Slack!

@Deet and @zsh created these beautiful posters that you can print and share too. If you're hosting a gathering of hackers, dm me or @Thomas on Slack and we can mail you a few ✨

Lastly, here's a video created to inspire Hacker culture within your club. I'd recommend showing it in your first club meeting!


πŸͺ„ Learn PCB design with your club this year

Join Onboard and learn to design printed circuit boards with a new Jam made by Maggie and we'll cover up to $100 to get your creation manufactured! Check out some of the awesome projects being build right now and get help whenever you need it in #onboard on Slack.

Hack Club is building a navy! We need your help designing a flag to fly from the floating bouncy castleβ€”our flagship vesselβ€”on its deployment to Maker Faire in October. Go to #flag-referendum in Slack, submit your design, and help refine other proposals before voting begins on September 15th.
