Zora Ball is known as the youngest person in the whole world to create a full mobile video game application.
Using the programming language Bootstrap, the seven year old developed the app to help students between the ages of 12 and 16 learn algebra. The app was unveiled at FATE’s “Bootstrap Expo” at the University of Pennsylvania.
The pint sized programmer had many skeptics who suspected that her older brother, Trace Ball, was actually the game’s designer. But she shut her critics up by explaining to them step by step how to reconfigure the application. Her brother Trace is a past STEM Scholar of the Year.
Zora is a first grader at Philadelphia’s Harambee Institute of Science and Technology Charter School. She is well known amongst her peers and teachers who are all so proud of the young lady and anticipate that she’ll do great things in the future.
