Wellesley Creates 2020

Middle and high school students work together in teams to create an app to solve a problem in Wellesley. This one day event, formerly known as the CreateAthon, is organized entirely by Wellesley High School computer science students. No programing experience required; students are taught how to build an app using App Inventor. See highlights below.

This year's Wellesley Creates will be held on March 28, 2020!
