This is Zora Ball. She is the youngest person to develop a mobile game app, according to Mashable and The Philadelphia Tribune. She looks really young right? Yeah, that’s because she’s SEVEN.
I know some people will, inevitably, assume she didn’t really create it. Well, according to these two sources she changed her program by request in real-time.
“We expect great things from Zora, as her older brother, Trace Ball, is a past STEM Scholar of the Year,” said Harambee Institute of Science and Technology Charter School Science Teacher Tariq Al-Nasir, who is also the founder of Harambee’s successful STEMnasium Learning Academy (Philly Tribune) .
You can read about Zora and other awesome kids coding and being the apple of my eye in Mashable’s “Kids Code the Darndest Things" . Dude, there is one there, Lim Ding Wen, who is reportedly fluent in six coding languages.
Now, that’s badass.
