Text @mhsbyte to 81010 to get signed up for the MHS Byte Club Remind!
Goal for this Club
Give people a chance to learn and program with others
Build large-scale projects in teams
Spread awareness about the benfits of learning to code throughout MHS.
Support other MHS extra-curriculars with the use of technology and coding
Projects we are currently doing or will be doing
Chrome extensions: MHS issues chromebooks to students, which means our extensions can have a big impact. For example, the school CIPA filter blocks a lot of relevant sites, but visiting a site to find that it's blocked is annoying and time-wasting. The school is like "we are going to build a firewall." We made a chrome extension that lets you know whether a link is blocked or not, and now our lives are bliss.
Hackathons: These are events where programmers get together and build insane things in a short span of time (never send a human to do a machine's job). Some (unaffiliated) examples of hackathons you could attend are CodeDay or any listed at MLH.
Website building: Even if you don't want to make websites, it's cool to understand how they work. Learning HTML/CSS is a great way to start! Khanacademy.org and Codecademy.org are good beginner tools.
Impossible Game Challenge: We made a fun club project to put our Khanacademy programming skills to use. The club members made mini-challenges that were put together to make one big impossible game.
Graduation seating arranger: Mrs. Billitier asked us to help her out when organizing which graduate sits where for graduation. This program is the start of our help.
Mustang Match Maker: This survey of love is Byte Club's most famous creation! We hope you enjoy our prediction of your best Mustang Match.
March Madness: We had an idea to make a programming leaderboard game similar to March Madness, but this is as far as we got.
