UPCOMING: ZORA BALL IS YOUNGEST MOBILE APP CREATOR

Instead of playing with mobile apps like most kids her age, Zora Ball is creating them. The 7-year old Philadelphia resident is the youngest person ever to create a full-version mobile video game application.

The small wonder presented her new app at the University of Pennsylvania’s “Bootstrap Expo.” In order to show the authenticity of the application and that she was indeed the developer, Zora reconfigured the application upon request during the Expo.

Zora attends Harambee Institute of Science Technology Charter School, which is where she learned the Bootstrap programming language. “She was given very basic information,” said her teacher Tariq Al-Nasir during an interview. “She transformed her screen into a nail salon!  She found a picture of a ballerina, she found a picture of a jewel, and then another picture of a vampire.  The game she created is called ‘Vampire Diamonds,’ and the object is to get the diamond and avoid the vampire.”

During the interview, Tariq said that he has also taught Zora Racket, a programming language that is usually taught on college campuses.

Zora is a true example of our children being the future!
