The 11 year old ApacheCon Keynote Speaker and workshop host, Samaira Mehta, invented STEM coding board game CoderBunnyz to teach coding to kids age 4-104. She has done over 155 workshops with her board game in Silicon Valley, teaching over 4800 kids, including over 50 at Google HQ. She also started an initiative "Girls U Code" to teach coding to underrepresented girls. She has received letters from "The White House" for her work and has been featured in Today's show, Yahoo finance, Business Insider, NBC, Sony, ZDF, sina.com and over 100 medias in 80 countries. Last summer, she invented the world's first-ever AI board game, CoderMindz. Her goal is to help one billion kids gain access to coding tools by the time she goes to college. She’s well on her way with her 1 Billion Kids Can Code initiative.
