While the familiar "maker movement" tends to focus on manipulating three-dimensional objects, the burgeoning "hack culture" is making its mark primarily in 2-D. Also known as "coding," the act of "hacking" is merely solving a problem through the use of any and all computer programming languages. High schools in the technology-rich Silicon Valley have long nourished a variety of computer science courses, but coding is making its mark in the school club category. Instructors looking to encourage students to start coding clubs can point toward entities such as San Francisco-based Hack Club, a nonprofit that helps high school students start coding clubs with pre-built curriculum, free of charge.
