    What is a hackathon?

    A hackathon is an event where participants (hackers) team up to
    find solutions and concepts in a short period of time, tackling the
    stated problems. The goal is to give everyone the opportunity to
    use their abilities for the common good and to strengthen
    community engagement.

    What will the participants accomplish?
    Apart from Coding and Robotics experience, the participants would gain exposure towards Product Innovation and Entrepreneurship (Techpreneur). We are aspiring each and every participate to be a product innovators in 21st century.

    For both parents and students, we will be hosting a series of education sessions about “Hackathon 101” during the following time slots – Oct 30th 6 pm- 7 pm, Oct 31st 11 am- 12 pm, Oct 31st 3 pm- 4 pm, Nov 1st 11 am- 12 pm, Nov 1st 3 pm- 4 pm.

    Why it's important to participate during early years ?

    We are bringing innovation from the corporate world to schools. Hack-a-thon(s) allow kids to create new ideas and concepts, to learn product development and the market. Kids learn how to collaborate intensively over a short period of time in an agile approach to innovate new products/ solutions.
