Information About the Appathon:

No prior experience is necessary in order to participate in this fun, hands-on event. Ekal Youth Leaders will lead a hands-on workshop in the morning in order to teach everyone how to use an app building software. Later in the day, participants will be put in teams and use their new found knowledge to take part in a competition. In this competition, they will have to build their own app or a prototype of it. Ekal Youth Leaders will help them if necessary. Finally, all teams will present their app to the judges. 

All participants will receive certificates and winners of the competition will be awarded trophies.

Adults and children 8 years and older are welcome to participate. Each participant must bring their own laptop. A lunch of pizza will be provided.
