Hack March Release Notes

Updated: Mar 24

Today, we proudly announce Hack’s March release! We hope you like it - let us know what you think on social media with #MadeToHack!


In this release, we’re (officially) introducing Glimpse, after a sneak peek in last month’s create-a-cursor quest. Glimpse is a fully-featured, free, open-source photo editor, much like Photoshop! We’ve also got some more Blender tutorials, on how to make and texture a low-poly Well, and some new activities that explore the internals of p5.js!
