learnING TO code = LEARNING TO THINK

 

I'm an ordinary teenager with extraordinary dreams about the capability of Science and Technology. 

My recent achievements :


I enjoyed speaking at the Scratch Conference Budapest in August 2017. Here are some photos of the event.

Was a wonderful experience participating as Team Luxembourg in the Robotics Olympics held in Washington DC in July 2017. We competed against 160 odd nations to be able to build and program a robot for the challenge on the theme of providing access to clean water.  Our Luxembourg Prime Minister, Mr. Xavier Bettel came to encourage our team.

Our team of 3 teens won special prize competing against 33 teams in the Game of Code.

Successfully delivered address at the Marketing Management Congress in Berlin in December 2016. Talked about the way simple code updates can help fix simple problems.

Successfully delivered keynote address at Code Motion in Milan in November 2016. The message on how we have failed Alan Turing was well received. Also announced the initiative supercoders.eu to help address it. Here is the video of the talk.

Successfully was co-speaker with the President of Workshop4Me (my Mum) at the European Women in Technology Conference in Amsterdam in November 2016. Here is the video of the talk. You might need to enter password EWIT16 to view the video.

Successfully delivered the TEDxAssiRd talk on August 14th 2016. The message about empowering pre-teens and teens differently was well received. Here are some photos.

This summer 2016, I enjoyed the Summer Code camp where we created new games, apps and animation!

I featured in the June issue of Delano magazine in their article titled Talented Teens

I was responsible for technology solutions for the Luxembourg Peace prize held at the European Parliament in May.

I ran Mum and Girls coding event with my Mom to celebrate International Women's Day in March. It was great to run an activity that will be in my Mum's book on coding for the very first time. The participants loved it. Stay tuned for the book!

I was the youngest ever speaker at the LIFT Conference in Geneva this February. It was wonderful to speak to an audience of 750 participants. The video of talk can be seen here. You can access the talk with slides and also the Q&A.  Here is the audience feedback, details of my session and me. Let me know what you think about the next wave of disruption!

I have been on Radio ARA talking about how simple coding really is and not difficult like people think about it.

I ran a Coding Camp during the Halloween break in November where we created some cool games on Scratch with the participants.

I ran 2 Coding workshops for EU Code week. One on Mobile App Development  and one on HTML Basics for which I got very positive feedback from participants.

In the summer 2015, I did an internship at KloneWorld and developed an iOS app for drawing. I also started making a game that is half finished. Hope to complete it soon!

During the summer, on a weekend in July 2015,  I helped to conduct paper based coding activity for under-privileged children in Kolkata.
I also conducted coding workshops for 500 students of S.N.S Vidya Mandir, school in Ghatshila, India where we did graph paper programming and Scratch.

I co-facilitated workshop on mobile app development for 16-18 year old school students of Echternach, Luxembourg school.

I conducted workshop on 'Introduction to Computer Science for kids' for Geek Week Luxembourg in June 2015. I conducted another workshop to teach both adults and kids how to build a website . The Geek Week team posted my interview too!

I spent a week of my Easter holiday in April 2015 at Hannover, Germany at the Trade Fair. India was the partner country and I had an opportunity to hear the Prime Minister of both countries address us. I interacted with a lot of technology experts and learnt cool things.

I co-facilitated the Mums and Girls coding event with Geek Girls Carrots at Microsoft in Mar 2015. We were featured on CNN International as the 10 worldwide IWD events that you would be crazy to miss!

I spoke at Geek Girls Carrots event and taught Vedic Maths in Feb 2015.

solved an ICT glitch at  Delhaize, which had suddenly jammed  automated doors on a Sunday morning disrupting movement of customers.  

I have made a video for Workshop4me

I had a History homework about the Islamic empire and was only allowed 50 words per topic and 1 picture... I turned this in homework using technology and my teacher was amazed.

I gave suggestions to Supercell, maker of 'Clash of Clans', most of which have been accepted and implemented. My suggestion about introducing 'Level 11 walls' has been the most innovative one. 

I know that we kids find it difficult to manage homework so I shared the way I do it.

Summer (2014):

I was one of the facilitators,  along with Bryan (MIT Graduate) and Carl (entrepreneur and product manager),  who helped 16-18 year olds on how to build a website, create a blog and use iMovie. The event was organised  by BGL BNP Paribas Summer School

I have been attending a workshop using 'Wearable' technology  and learnt to program transistors to light up smart micro LEDs attached to clothes. Our meetup is here.  

I love to teach coding and so I ran summer code camp for 7 to 15 years old.

Simplify Coding!
