110 - Code Circle at the WITI Summit: App Design & Development for Girls

Katie Mishra is Founder and CEO of Code Circle, an international youth-driven non-profit working to provide engaging courses to teach middle schoolers the design, logic, and engineering behind computer science. Ms. Mishra, currently a junior at Castilleja School in Palo Alto, California, created Code Circle's App Design & Development curriculum after seeing the lack of engaging programming material at Boys and Girls Club and seeking to share her own love of computer science. For her efforts she has won numerous national awards, been featured in newspapers, and spoken at international conferences.

In her free time, Ms. Mishra is Scouting and Strategy and Research and Development lead on her all-girls robotics team, writes and publishes novels, and develops apps. In college, she wants to double major in computer science and business to become a leader in the technology sector.
