Samaira Mehta speaks at Microsoft’s Women In Tech Conference
Featured in TIME and at NBC Universal, 10-year-old Samaira invented a STEM coding board game, CoderBunnyz, at the age of 7 with the goal of teaching coding to kids aged four to 104 and also help bridge the gender gap in technology.
She’s led more than 75 workshops with her board game in Silicon Valley – Google, Microsoft, Intel, libraries, and schools – teaching thousands of kids how to code and has also started an initiative to teach coding to underrepresented girls. Last summer, she invented the world’s first A.I. board game, CoderMindz. Her goal is to help one billion kids gain access to coding tools by the time she goes to college, and she’s very well on her way with her ‘1 Billion Kids Can Code’ initiative. At 10, Samaira is among one of the youngest keynote speakers and has been speaking at various corporations, events, and conferences including the Mobile World Congress, Barcelona. Samaira’s also a singer, composer, blog writer, and loves to play guitar.
