Raising the bar

(Continued)

For Amello, coding and computers have been a part of his life since he was 10 years old, inspired by his curiosity. As he explains, he was playing games on the computer and wanted to be able to say “I created this,” so he examined how others were doing it and started doing it himself. To his credit, he has developed a Web browser like Internet Explorer and is now working on an anti-virus suite, and he has filed for patents for his work under his company Avia Creations, which his mom Anne Marie helps manage.

“We’re excited when kids like Nick take the initiative – he elected to take on this project which was more work for him – because it shows passion and drive, which is what we try to instill in all the kids that are here at Triton,” said Norton.
