MIT APPATHON FOR GOOD 2022
Children worked on Fantastic Themes : United Nation’s Sustainability Development Goals (SDG) : Life below Water, Life on Land, Sustainable Cities and Communities, Quality Education this Appathon.
It was awesome to see children working towards understanding the current real world problems which are not in their academic curriculum yet. More than the awareness they got, it was their keenness on finding a solution for the same , whether small or big , but appreciate the empathy and the meta skills like problem solving, team work, collaboration, communication, social skills developed in the due course of the App Development Programme and the Appathon along with the digital literacy.!

Theme : Quality Education
The National education policy [NEP 2020 ] adopted by the Indian government is also in line with Goal 4 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 2030).
The SDGs 2030 targets to ensure primary & secondary education for all & equal access to quality technical & vocational education .
Majority of Indian students stay in rural areas.
So they are denied access to basic pre primary education due to poverty, lack of infrastructure, non availability of schools in vicinity,
Apathy of parents/guardians towards education etc.
So App “EduRoot ” focuses on the Foundation level of education.
i.e Pre primary & Primary education with special emphasis on Inclusivity.
