First Hackathon A Major Success
This hackathon, held on Saturday, December 14th, 2019, was put on by No App-Maker Left Behind, a non-profit, student-run organization that teaches the basics of app-development to elementary school-aged children at libraries and schools across the Bay Area. Our goal was to reach out to young students in our communities and introduce them to the world of STEM through an app-development competition by using MIT App Inventor to develop apps, which were judged on aesthetics, usefulness, UX (user experience) and flow. This goal was accomplished with the help of Enquero, who provided a venue/accommodation for us to host this hackathon as well as Khalis Foundation, who sponsored this event.
Conducted by: Japleen Kaur, Nikhil Kichili, and Rakesh Mehta.
