Agrotech 2009: take the robot's challenge

General description

Look at your hands; empty. Could you get food from that?

Come Madrid for BEST engineering competition: Agrotech 2009. Work in teams with people from all Europe, in order to build and program your own agricultural robot. By the hand of LEGO-Mindstorm robotics.

Stop wasting time looking at those empty hands, and remember: Sine Agricultura nihil (without agriculture, nothing). Let's create, let's crop, let's grow...

Spend a week with us, take part of this Engineering competition, and live the BEST experience you can have about agricultural robots, (did you know any other? ;) )

Now, look at your hands again: create!

Sine YOU nihil! :)
