Fifth-grader Lauren is making things happen as a volunteer and coder at the CoderDojo Collaborative. She recently earned her Yellow Belt in the Introduction to Computer Programming Class after earning a White Belt and Junior Mentoring in the Scratch class last semester.

At the promotion ceremony, where the above picture was taken, she arrived two and a half hours early to help set up.

CoderDojo is a worldwide effort to help young people learn programming languages.

And as an example of her math skills, she overheard a conversation with adults as they were working with pen and paper to design a room layout to accommodate all of the guests for the promotion ceremony.

"Oooh! Are you all talking about math?" she asked while running over to join them. "Can I help?"
