About The Event

The Appathon works to educate the next generation of technologists, innovators, and leaders. From researchers to entrepreneurship trailblazers, this conference is a unique opportunity to interact with the leaders in the fields of AI and application development through workshops and panels. As part of this event, students will also have the chance to compete in a competition (ideathon), where they can submit business pitches and/or prototypes for an app that can have a real-world impact.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • All students in grades 6-12 are welcome to attend! Unlike most of our monthly workshops, this is a national event, so all students across the US are welcome to attend.

  • The event will be held virtually due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. After registration, participants will receive more detailed logistical information.

  • 5 min (max) video that allows students to pitch a business plan. If students are not comfortable submitting a video of themselves, they are also allowed to submit a write up.

  • Students will be allowed to submit projects starting July 5, and the deadline for projects is August 5th. You will submit your project via this form.

  • Many organizations, especially during the COVID pandemic, have hosted online hackathons and summits. What makes this flagship Appathon event unique is its emphasis on idea creation for apps. The widespread impact an app can have on the world is unimaginable, and through our interactive workshops and prize-incentivized competition, students will delve into the world of application development.
