Kids type the darnedest things on supposedly inferior keyboards, in Costa Mesa, California;
Emma Wang's fingers danced across the keyboard with the speed and accuracy of a highly skilled word processor.
On a good day, the sixth-grader from Newport Coast Elementary School said, she can type more than 100 words per minute with fairly good accuracy.
On Monday morning, during Newport-Mesa Unified's first Qwerty keyboarding competition, Wang typed 83 words per minute with 93% accuracy. Although it was the highest score in the competition, Wang said she was having an off day.
"I was kind of nervous when I stepped into the room," she said. "I wasn't really doing well today."Just imagine how nervous she must make Paul David, Brian Arthur and Paul Krugman.
