Mumbai: Shaurya Sharma, 12


Shaurya Sharma has been working on an artificial intelligence-based chat bot and app, creating YouTube videos, and starting a short-lived car-washing venture. He has been learning how to code with WhiteHat Jr since 2019. “The app is to ease conversations between students and teachers, and the chat bot on the school’s website is for new students or parents who have questions about the school,” he explains. “Due to online classes, I'll be able to finish my app a lot faster.”
