Free:  Hackathon for kids – Google Home App

 

Ever participated in a Hackathon?  Ever created an App?  Come out and learn how to create an app for Google Home.  You know, that little device you speak into and it answers your questions. Remember the Jetsons?

Google Home speakers enable users to speak voice commands to interact with services through Google’s intelligent personal assistant called Google Assistant.

Veda Rogers, Director of Education at The MADE (Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment)  will lead and host this Hackathon using Dialogflow to create voice apps for Google devices like Google Home. We’ll start out with the adults for an overview of the Hackathon process and what to do to make an app, then we’ll (kids) break out into our own groups of 1-4 team members.  Sonja C. Stewart, PMP and Donna Jacobs from PJMan & The StarGazers will guide the kid groups.  As much as possible, we’ll empower the kids to develop their own app, of course, we’ll start with a simple project plan, determine roles and then let the fun begin.

Top submissions for adults and kids will be submitted to Google Home.  Read more…
