The second annual CreateAthon will be on March 24th from 10am to 4pm at Wellesley High School. At the CreateAthon, high school and middle school students who live or go to school in Wellesley will work in teams to create an app from scratch. These apps will target specific community problems such as environmental, education or health issues presented in problem statements by community members such as Wellesley superintendent David Lussier, leaders from Sustainable Wellesley and local business owners.
The CreateAthon is free thanks to the generosity of a slew of sponsors, and registration opens on March 1. Eighty participants will be able to attend.
The day will include four instructional workshops and all student teams will be paired with mentors to allow all participants to learn the process of ideation and MIT App Inventor. No programming experience is required.
