Meet Nayeli Nazarit and hear about the projects that Pi515 offers our students
The most fun about Pi515 has been working with middle school students to teach them how to code! Also, working with my Pi515 teammates to build a shopping app for the Congressional App Challenge was a fun and great learning experience! I have learned the languages HTML, CSS, and Java. We made our own websites and presented them to employees at American Equity. I have also learned so much about this career field. I feel like the opportunities are endless. Moreover, it has taught me more about collaboration. Since it will be crucial to have in our future jobs, I believe it is important.
Pi515's "Day of Innovation" taught six important lessons: passion fuels entrepreneurship, leaving the echo chamber is necessary, great mentorship is key, diversity drives innovation, youth notice problems and the future is bright.
Together, we must create a more equitable and safe community for all children.
Jade Nettrour is a senior in high school and has already designed an early prototype of new Christmas tree lights to make the annual decorating process easier — and more cat-friendly — for her family and their five felines. Nettrour’s demonstration earned her second place in a student “Shark Tank” pitch competition in 2020, and she’s now exploring patent options.
