Young Coding Wiz Creates Game to Teach Other Kids to Code

天才少女开发游戏教孩子们编程

Sameera Mehta is not your average 10 year old. She's been coding since age 6 and is into artificial intelligence.In fact, she's so passionate about these topics that she wants to share the love.She's created two board games in hopes that other kids, especially girls, will catch the tech bug.CoderBunnyz, it will teach you all the concepts you ever need in computer programming from the very basics,like sequencing, conditionals and debugging to more advanced computer programming concepts.CoderMindz, it's the first artificial intelligence board game ever created.We're setting up by arranging them in piles.Mehta was born into the tech world.Her dad who works in artificial intelligence at Intel first got her interested in coding when she was just six years old.

萨米拉·梅塔不是一般的十岁小孩,她从六岁起就开始编程,开始研究人工智能。事实上,她对这些话题怀有非常大的热情,所以她想要分享这份爱。她开发了两款棋盘游戏,希望其他孩子,尤其是女孩,能够培养对这一技术的兴趣。CoderBunnyz,它将教你所有计算机编程中所需的概念,从最基本的内容开始,比如从序列、条件和调试到更高级的计算机编程概念。CoderMindz,这是有史以来第一个人工智能棋盘游戏。我们要做的准备工作是把它们堆积起来。梅塔出生在科技环境中,她的父亲在英特尔从事人工智能工作,在她六岁的时候,第一次对编程产生了兴趣。

He showed me one button on his computer which said press this if you're beautiful.But then when my mouse pointer touched the you are beautiful command, it just disappeared.I was like, wait, how did you do that and they got me really involved in coding.I think there's a lot of passion and enthusiasm in this girl and she wants to make a difference and that is coming from the heart.Mehta particularly hopes to inspire other girls.

他给我看电脑上的一个按钮,上面说如果你觉得自己漂亮就按这个。但是当我的鼠标按下“你是美丽的”这一命令时,它就消失了。我就想,等等,这是怎么做到的?这真的引起了我对编程的兴趣。我认为这个小姑娘内心有很大的激情和热情,她想要做出改变,这是发自她内心的想法。梅塔特别希望能激励其他女孩。

I believe that girls are underrepresented, especially in this computer science and technology field.She has held coding workshops for kids at local libraries, Google, Microsoft and Intel.Her ambitions have even gotten her face to face with Mark Zuckerberg, using a strategy only a kid could pull off.Actually handing out the candy on Halloween when we went to his house, so we talked for a little while.She's already made more than two hundred thousand US dollars worldwide from her board games and has started a girls initiative called Girls You Code.So what's next?I like coding and I like artificial intelligence and I want to use it to do good to others.Seems like this trailblazer is on the right path.

我认为女孩在行业内所占比例较低,特别是在计算机科学和技术领域。她曾在当地图书馆、谷歌、微软和英特尔平台为孩子们举办过编程研讨会。她的雄心壮志甚至给了她机会与马克·扎克伯格面对面接触,并且是通过一种只有孩子才能实现的方式。我们去他家的时候,一起在万圣节分发糖果,然后我们聊了一会儿。通过开发的棋盘游戏,她已经在全球范围内赚到了二十多万美元,并发起了一项名为“女孩来编程吧”的针对女孩子的倡议。下一步是什么呢?我喜欢编程,我喜欢人工智能,我想用它来为别人做好事。看来这位开拓者踏上了一条正确道路。
