  • What if I don't know how to code?
    That's perfectly fine! Color Hacks' goal is to provide underrepresented high school students with early exposure to the world of tech while helping them develop new programming skills and improve pre-existing ones alongside peers that share their unique experiences as minorities in tech. So don't worry, you'll be fine :) just have fun!
