Suhani Aggarwal will be leading this program. She is a junior at Staples High School who has long been involved in STEM, especially coding. Over the summer, she completed a course in Artificial Intelligence from the Harvard Division for Continuing Education and is excited about sharing what she has learned though this fun game-creation program. Additionally, she has developed a web app to simplify the complex process of high school course selection: myschoolscheduling.com.
