Robots legos, electronics, mechanics, computers, calculators and my father science books were always around me the best way to put all them together was robotics. Dr eduardo torres-jara, 40, developed his love for technology as a child in ecuador his parents encouraged him and provided him with tools to expand his knowledge and interest “i’ve always liked technology i was always building machines and robots with my legos,” says torres-jara.
