11 year Old Girl Makes Video Game and Meets President Obama

Posted by TurtleGirl On February - 13 - 2012

What can the new generation of children teach us about making video games? that it’s possible at a very young age. According to the Telegram, Hannah.J.Wyman started creating a video game that would highlight and inform us about environment pollution, which she later discussed with President Barack Obama.

Hannah managed to program her game named ‘Toxic’ using Microsoft’s Kodu software. She was chosen between two other students who were interested in programming at her local school to compete in Microsoft’s first ever U.S. Kodu Cup competition last year. She was chosen out of thousands of children, who were all competing on a national level. Hannah won the first prize in her age group. Hannah was chosen for “Toxic” as one of 100 students nationally to participate in the 2012 White House Science Fair and among the 30 that would get to present their projects to President Obama on Tuesday. She was the only student from Massachusetts to participate in the science fair and she and another 11-year-old at the science fair were the youngest. Hannah won $5,000 in prize money for the school and it was used to buy 10 new iPads. Hannah is working on another game with three of her classmates to enter in this year’s Kodu Cup competition in the group category.
 

When she gets older, she said she wants to combine her love of dance with computer software designing.
