About hack an app

Supporting young talent is firmly anchored in our values. In our "hack an app" IT project weeks, our employees in Zurich, Berne and Basel show children how exciting, diverse and creative IT can be. To this day, our youth development program has inspired more than 2,000 children.
Within four days, students develop their own quiz app. From idea to design to presentation to parents, we guide the kids through every step of the process. In addition to the practical implementation, they learn the basics of IT and are introduced to the latest innovations and technologies such as virtual reality and artificial intelligence.
