The Cedarwood Codeathon

A hackathon is a coding marathon where programmers work individually or in teams to solve a given problem. This is a great way for our budding coders to put their knowledge to test. This hackathon is tailored for young learners, with exciting themes and ideating sessions that steer the students towards obtaining compelling outcomes. 

 

The event starts off with an enkindling workshop that promotes design thinking and problem solving. This is followed by discussion of ideas - here the students will work as a team or with the mentor to decide how they’ll execute their project. On day 2, the participants will have an hour and a half to carry out the actual coding, followed by a presentation of the final project. This grand two day event will end with a valedictorian session where we will announce the winners of the hackathon.
