My name is Ishaan Rao. I am a rising junior at the North Carolina School of Science and Math in Durham, NC. I have lived in Raleigh for my entire life. My favorite subjects in school are chemistry and calculus. I also enjoy geography and history, and I am a big trivia fan. I want to be an engineer, computer scientist or a lawyer. I have loved computers and technology from a young age. My first programming language was Python, which I learned in eighth grade. Once I came to Shodor I was introduced to many new programs such as Vensim and AgentSheets. I also learned a little bit of Xcode in a summer workshop. Xcode is the programming language used to create iOS applications. It was a great experience. My first model was created on Vensim; I created a model that depicted the flow of water on a farm. This model also calculates the income that the farmer makes, based on the ratio between his lake, corn maze, and parking lot. Shodor has encouraged me to try new things and explore. I have learned many new things here at Shodor, and I hope to continue exploring programming and using computers, and that the use of programming and technology will be a major part of my career.
