Taj Pabari's love for Lego took him from a typical high school student to CEO of his own technology start-up by the age of 16.
The Australian teenager started Fiftysix Creations in 2014, selling build-it-yourself tablet and coding kits for kids aged six to 16. The company also runs workshops and training programs in schools and promotes information technology education among children in disadvantaged and remote communities.
"As a child, I loved Lego and I love information communication technology," Pabari told CNBC's "The Rundown" on Monday. "And I thought, you know what, let me create the Lego for the 21st century."
Fiftysix tablet kits contain parts of a tablet that the children put together using step-by-step instructions, much like assembling Lego blocks. There are two varieties of tablet - the One kit for beginners, which costs 199 Australian dollars ($151), and the more advanced Classic for A$299, which has slightly better specifications.
