The new Lego Boost sets combine traditional Legos with a smart tablet, so kids can build and
operate automated Lego robots. You can make a guitar that plays sound effects, a cat that purrs
and interacts with you, or a robot that you can make move and talk. The projects are animated
using an icon-based coding app, which teaches kids basic coding commands and concepts.
To test the new smart Legos, we enlisted the help of two extraordinary young men: Carson
Huey-You, 14, who graduated from Texas Christian University this past May with a degree
in physics, and his brother, Cannan, 11, who graduated from high school the same month. So,
once again: Carson graduated college at 14, Cannan graduated high school at 11.
