Fox Chapel Area brothers demonstrate robotics skills for Lego executives and others in Denmark
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.
