At an age where most of us were lost in cartoons, Samaira Mehta is taking Silicon Valley by storm! The 10-year-old is a skilled programmer and has become somewhat of an icon for aspiring coders. Samaira has developed Coder Bunnyz- a coding board game that teaches children all the concepts necessary in computer programming. She has already attended events by technology giants like Google and Microsoft as a keynote speaker. Samaira’s father, Rakesh, who is an engineer at Intel and Sun Microsystems/Oracle, had a strategic business plan in mind for Coder Bunnyz. It started with young Samaira testing the game with her friends so they could point errors and share feedback. Accordingly, Samaira refined Coder Bunnyz to perfection. The duo didn’t stop at that. They arranged for coding workshops for kid coders which Samaira conducted. They also established a company to launch the game. Samaira’s workshop and the game are loved by most who meet her. In fact, from the moment she launched Coder Bunnyz, Samaira has conducted over 60 workshops in Silicon Valley which has been attended by about 2,000 kids. Within a year, she also sold about 1,000 boxes of her game, worth $35,000 in all.
