Jun 8, 2017, 06:26 PM IST Times Of India, Thiruvananthapuram: "There is algorithm in everything you do. When you brush your teeth there is a sequence, an algorithm. I try to find this in everything around me and I love using computer for the same reason," said eight year old Diya VS.

While her peers find enjoyment in playing traditional indoor games, Diya is always busy with games that use commands and coding to solve problems. 
Last Sunday Diya VS received the International First Rank for the cyber Olympiadexams conducted by the Science Olympiad Foundation (SOF) 2016-17 in a function held in New Delhi.

"I love to experiment with the commands in MS logo. Once I tried to figure out how many steps are there in MS Logo and I found that it was 10000 steps long,'' said Diya.

Over 42800 schools from 1400 cities across 25 countries participated in the sixth SOF Olympiad exams and around 45 lakh students had appeared for the test. Divya was awarded gold medal and a purse of Rs 50000.
