Seventeen-year-old Louisville high school student Aditya Gollamudi used his expertise in computer science to provide fellow Kentuckians with the tools they need to start down a new career path. 

Gollamudi, a junior at duPont Manual High School, recently launched a curriculum of free online computer science lessons for adults called Path2Programming. His goal is to assist people, especially those living in Eastern and Western Kentucky, explore computer science and related career opportunities. He's spent his spare time over the past two years designing an easy-to-understand series of classes that teach participants to code, website development, and other computer skills. 

"We feel like this is a great solution for people who either have lost jobs or are looking to change careers," Gollamudi says. "We give people the ability to expand their skillset, explore a new field and potentially find career options."
