Social media users were inspired by the young tech genius and they applauded her online.

Briefly.co.za gathered Matlali first made headlines last year when she built her first robot at the age of 10. It took her two months to build and develop a moving robot, taking into consideration several factors, including the height and weight of the robot.

According to The Sowetan, the Maria Montessori House's pupil learned how to code when she was just six years old.

"Coding relaxes me. It allows me to escape from other thoughts in my head," she said.

Matlali's parents got her into code - her dad is a mechanical engineer and her mother owns a coding school called Africa Teen Geeks.
