What Does This Button Do?

General description

What does this button do is a summer course about automatics.

During the two week stay in Estonia you will learn how automatic production lines, intelligent houses and automated vehicles work. There will be also lessons about logical programming and you can practise your new skills in the laboratory.

After the collapse of Soviet Union Estonia faced a challenge to turn the factories with more than 30 years out of date equipment into modern production units that follow the standards of 21 st century. From that we have gained a lot of useful knowledge on the field of automatics and we are willing to share it with you. So you could find out what does this button do ;)

But it is not going to be all work and no play, you will have the perfect chance to get to know the countryside as we travel around in Estonia. And of course a lot of different parties with crazy Estonians.
