220. Rumi Khan (App Developer, Delaware)

There are now more than 500,000 iPhone apps, and one of them is the creation of Rumi Khan, a 12-year-old student at Newark Charter School. The Delaware Department of Education recently recognized Rumi’s efforts to create and distribute “Dare to be Square: The Adventure of the Red Square.” Rumi designed the game, wrote the code and drew the graphics for the game, which has 10 levels where the main character, the square, fights enemies to ultimately recapture his lost memory. He created everything but the music. A snippet of the game is at grabbyarmgames.com, the website for Grabby Arm Games, which he founded.
