Sanjay and Arvind Seshan spent four days in Denmark promoting robotics at LEGO World.

Two Fox Chapel Area students and robotics experts were invited to Lego World in Copenhagen, Denmark, to demonstrate that building and programming robots is fun and can be accessible to all.

Brothers Sanjay and Arvind Seshan spent four days in February speaking to thousands about the Lego Mindstorm robots they created for the event.

A highlight was meeting Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, owner of The Lego Group, and Jørgen Vig Knudstorp, its executive chairman, they said. The Seshan brothers also had a chance to present their First Lego League robot to the executives.

First Lego League is an international youth robotics competition for children 9-16. There are 30,000 teams worldwide.

The Seshans' team, Not the Droids You Are Looking For, is the league's state champion. They will compete at the international World Festival in Detroit in April against the top 108 teams in the world.

The brothers are the creators of ev3lessons.com, a website that teaches how to work with Lego Mindstorm EV3 robotics kits.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
