Anneliese is a junior at West Lafayette Jr./Sr. High School. She was one of three ninth grade girls to complete Computer Science AP and was excited to have the opportunity to do so. She followed up on her studies by taking a computer science course at Purdue University. Her interest in programming started in fourth grade when she joined a lego robotics team and then began learning LISP. Since then, she has participated in many computer science activities including ZERO robotics and Aspire IT. In addition to these clubs, Anneliese applied her knowledge of computing as she worked on a graduate level materials research project. Outside of programming, Anneliese is in the eleventh grade student council, plays soccer for her high school, and enjoys learning math.
