Miral Kotb has two great loves: coding and dance. While they might seem like they have nothing in common, Miral has discovered a new, innovative way to combine her two passions. Through her project, iLuminate, she’s letting the creative side of code beam bright. Her dance-in-the-dark sensation has dancers dressed in black set against a black background. From there, lights that line their outfits illuminate their performance. By finding the intersection between code and dance, Miral is bringing the creative side of STEM to new audiences.
