A 9-year-old boy in Montana is drawing attention for a skill most adults don't even have.

Ben Hodson is a typical kid who takes piano lessons and plays with his little brothers.

But, it's what he can do in front of a computer that's different. Ben knows how to code, and even made his own video game.

Ben's feature game is called Shark Attack. He programmed it all by himself on a web site created by Massachusetts Institute of Technology students. The game won Ben first place at a Montana science fair.
