Kartikay Lal came to New Zealand as a 15-year-old with a pre-existing obsession for all things mechanical - picking them apart, fixing them and learning how things work really. That became a love for robotics when he discovered electronics as a student. In this Voices episode, we speak to him about this journey that's seen him help students in Rotorua enter national and international robotics competitions.
