A young boy who is passionate about robots has taken his dream to the next level by starting his own company, which also creates opportunities for other children to explore entrepreneurship and education about robotics engineering.
Callum Daniel (pictured left) is the very young and brilliant founder of iCodeRobots, a company that employs professional robotics engineers who teach young students about the fundamentals of designing, coding, and building robots. The company is based in the U.K. city of London, England.
“I developed a fascination with robots at four years of age, when I met Titan the Robot. I wanted to find out how Titan worked and if I could build something so awesome. That Xmas, my Mum bought me a Meccanoid G15 KS personal robot, which took me four weeks to build,” Callum wrote in a message on his company website.
In an exclusive interview with The Voice, a black-owned British newspaper, Callum’s mother Dionne Daniel (pictured right) also talked about her son blossoming from an enthusiastic toddler into the founder of his own company at the tender age of eight-years-old.
“His passion for robots developed when we went away for a weekend and he saw this thing called Titan the Robot. Callum was curious to know how Titan worked, which eventually led him to wanting to know if he could build something similar. He may have only been four years old at the time, but remained intrigued by him,” she told The Voice.
Callum also spoke with The Voice exclusively about his amazing story and offered some wise words of encouragement for children with big dreams. “I want all children to be confident and never let anyone tell them they can’t do things, because if people give us a chance we can,” Callum told The Voice.
iCodeRobots also has the sponsorship of several prominent entities inside the U.K., including Loughborough University London (Stratford) and an organization called Ultra Education. A youngster who gained the nickname “Robot Boy” in his toddler years is now a successful educator and entrepreneur. Your child can live their dreams too.
