Callum Daniel: CEO iCodeRobots, 8 years old

Callum developed a fascination with robots at four years old, when he met Titan the Robot. Callum wanted to find out how Titan worked and if he could build something similar. That Christmas Callum was given a Meccanoid G15 KS personal robot. It took him four weeks to build it. Once completed, he demonstrated the Meccanoid at his school assembly.

Callum then asked his parents to enrol him on a robotic course, but they couldn’t find anything locally, so he decided to set up his own company. iCodeRobots employs robotic engineers and robotic students (officially trained by Lego Education) from universities and colleges.  

Loughborough University London (Stratford) has sponsored iCodeRobots with an amazing space, where children can explore and learn in a safe, secure and stimulating environment.
