About Avye

Avye, now 11, 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 the 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 the Diana Award for her work to create opportunities for girls to engage with tech and for fundraising to provide girls with microcontrollers, physical computing kits & STEM-themed books.

Avye will be hosting her own session titled "Making a Microbit" for 8-12 year olds.
