At 7 years old, Zora Ball has become the youngest person to create a mobile video game.
The app was unveiled at the FATE Bootstrap Expo, held at the University of Pennsylvania last month.
Ball developed the game using programming language Bootstrap, which is usually taught to students between the ages of 12 and 16, to help them learn concepts of algebra via video game development.
According to Mashable, Ball also successfully reconfigured the app when asked to do so at the Expo, silencing anyone who may have thought that her older brother — a STEM scholar of the year — helped her program the game.
