  Youngest Video Game Programmer: Zora Ball sets world record

  
Philadelphia, PA, USA -- Zora Ball, 7, a first grader at Philadelphia's Harambee Institute of Science and Technology Charter School, created a full version of a mobile application video game; she built the app in the Bootstrap programming language, and unveiled her game at FATE's "Bootstrap Expo" at the University of Pennsylvania,
setting the world record for the Youngest Video Game Programmer, according to the World Record Academy: www.worldrecordacademy.com/.

  The Guinness world record for the Youngest person to be a professional video gamer was set by Lil Poison" (USA, aka Victor De Leon III) who in 2005, aged seven, signed an exclusive deal with the organisers of Major League Gaming, and became the youngest signed professional video gamer.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the youngest X Games athlete, set by Nyjah Huston (b. 30 November 1994, USA) who was 11 years 246 days old when he made his debut at X Games 12 (3-6 August 2006) when he competed in Men's Skateboard Street.

  
A bright young programmer from Philadelphia recently unveiled a video game involving ballerinas, jewels and vampires — sure to be a hit with young girls.

  Zora Ball, who first revealed her game at FATE's (the Foundation for the Advancement of Technology in Education) "Bootstrap Expo" at the University of Pennsylvania, had to prove herself to critics who suspected that her older brother was responsible for the work.

  However, "When asked to reconfigure the app on the spot, Ball showed naysayers what was up when she executed the request perfectly," Jezebel reports.

  Zora Ball, a first grader at the Harambee Institute of Science and Technology Charter School in Philadelphia, created the video game in a class focused on science, technology, engineering and mathematics led by Tariq Al-Nasir, who heads the STEMnasium Learning Academy.

  "We expect great things from Zora, as her older brother, Trace Ball, is a past STEM Scholar of the Year," said Harambee Science Teacher Tariq Al-Nasir.
