Nikita is a senior at New Trier High School. His interest in computer science started in 6th grade, and he’s been working on expanding his knowledge to more than just software. He has taken many computer science courses at New Trier, works at the IT desk, and is president of 3 computer science related clubs. He joined BinaryHeart to get a better understanding of the hardware behind computers, and has since helped with the creation of the new BinaryHeart task website.
Margaret Lin is a senior at New Trier High School. Though she has always had an interest in data networks, she never imagined enjoying working with hardware until she joined BinaryHeart. Self-described as “attached at the hip” with her computer, she hopes to help students to access the same resources that have helped her in her educational journey. Participating in BinaryHeart has inspired her to begin online coding courses. In her free time, Maggie enjoys fencing, participating in competitive math, and packing books for prisoners with Chicago Books to Women in Prison.
Irene Xu is a senior at New Trier High School. To compliment her background in Java and Python, she has used BinaryHeart as an opportunity to develop robust hardware and leadership skills. As someone who uses her computer daily, she understands the importance of technology as a resource. More than personal development, she joined BinaryHeart with the intent of aiding other students in their pursuit of learning. In her free time, Irene enjoys snowboarding, karaoke, and violin.
Liam is a senior at New Trier High School. His interest in computer science sparked once he started exploring how to code in python. Using his skills, he has worked on projects ranging from turning on an LED to setting up a cloud server from home. Liam joined BinaryHeart because he believed that every child should have access to technology and the internet. In his spare time he participates in New Trier's Varsity Rowing, Computer Science, and Cyber Security Clubs.
Isabella Allada is a senior at New Trier High School. From a young age she fueled a passion for problem solving with programming and engineering projects. BinaryHeart was the perfect opportunity for her to put these skills to use in a way that would help her community.
