Girls Into Coding
Avye, now 12, started coding & attending physical computing workshops at 7. She is very active in the tech & maker community, dedicating a lot of her spare time to exploring & learning about coding & technology.
Avye leads regular coding & physical computing workshops for Coder Dojo at Kingston University & the University of West London. She has won competitions with the robots which she designs and makes. Nonetheless, she still finds time to enjoy swimming, playing tag rugby & football. She is enthusiastic about sharing her skills & experiences with others and is an Arm ambassador, part of the GenArm2Z program which enables young people to talk to tech leaders about how technology is being used & shaped for the future.
Aware of female under-representation in STEM education & careers, Avye was motivated to found Girls Into Coding to encourage more girl involvement in tech. She has received a Diana Award and The Diana Legacy Award for her work to create opportunities for girls to engage with tech and for fundraising to provide girls with Microbits, physical computing kits & STEM-themed books. More recently, in March she was announced joint winner of 2020 FDM EveryWoman in Technology awards in the ‘One to Watch’ category.
