Our Team

Meet our Directors

Sydney Von Arx

Uncommon Sense Director

I'm Sydney Von Arx, a computer science major at Stanford currently doing research under Fei-Fei Li in the Vision lab. I also help run Stanford Effective Altruism and work with the Stanford Existential Risks Initiative .

Devin Von Arx

Form and Function Director

I have always enjoyed computers. After many years of coding, I joined Bit by Bit in 2019 as a volunteer. Since then, I have helped run all three of our coding programs (middle school, high school, and summer). I currently coordinate the Form and Function after-school coding program. I want to help people see the beauty behind the binary in coding.

Cheyenne Huggins

Summer Programming Director

Learning about the world has been a passion of mine as I always wanted to understand the world around me. Coding has broadened my horizons bringing me many amazing opportunities such as volunteering with Bit by Bit, which I joined in the summer of 2020. Now, I coordinate our summer program, Hello World, to teach others about the wondrous world of coding.

Lucia Zhang

Operations Director

Hi! Compared to many people I know, I started coding pretty late due to an irrational fear of coding, but it has become one of my most intriguing hobbies. I joined Bit by Bit in 2020, working extensively to develop our Hello World summer camp. I currently direct BxB Central and hope to make it a strong community where students can learn, teach, and lead!

Meet our Leadership

Our leadership plays a crucial role in running smaller sections within BxB Central. They are the brains behind many of our organization's operations, training new volunteers, organizing their teams, and constantly improving what they do.

Meet our Mascot

Hello, I'm Bit by Bot, the official mascot of Form and Function and Hello World! I was created in the summer of 2020 by our volunteer and graphic design artist Olivia Wadley. I enjoy coding and learning new things about the world around me. In Bit by Bit, I get to experience the wonders of learning every day. To see more of me, you can visit the Form and Function or Hello World information pages!
