World Education Robot Seminar, with 10,000 competitors, aged 4-18. He has become proficient building and programming the robots in Open Source Scratch 2.0 or C to follow out tasks on the floor. When they compete it is also in small teams, and all preparation must be in your head. Working on the tasks of "Robots in Factory" dealing with moving e-waste.

He was then offered a place on the UK team to go to China for the final. He told me he loves to build the robots and then programme them. He hopes the next year they will use the newer more advance Abilix Krypton 8 robot he has at home. Planning for robots and AI.
