Owolola, 12, invented a robot he named ''Robot Grabber'', which functions as an assistant to move things around the house.

Owolola explained in an interview: "This is the robot grabber, I programmed it to identify an object and take it to another position."

Also, 12-year-old Abdullahi, invented a robot that functions to assist people after laundry and also folds clothes perfectly.

She disclosed that she decided to build the robot because that was the problem she had at home.

"I decided to build a robot that folds clothes because that is the problem we have at home," Abdullahi said.

Owolola revealed that he wants to become a robotic engineer while Abudullahi said she wants to become a food scientist.

The little man said he started coding at ten while the tech-brain lady revealed she started coding at the age of 11.
