Kirin is doing home schooling and attends a STEM robotics club. We talk about how he was in one of the teams in the Sheffield UK finals, of the team competition. 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. Upgrade from black and white to colour sensors, touch sensors, and motion sensors.
