Everyday I'm robotin'

General description

Congratulations, you've just done your first step into making your next holiday the best summer ever! Interested? Let me explain...

Why has R2-D2 become so popular? After all, he's small, annoying and he doesn't even speak. But he has a great advantage – HE'S A ROBOT! Everyone loves robots! Robotics is one of the fastest developing branches of science and it's said that in a couple of decades robots will become a part of everyday reality. But wait... What?

BEST Warsaw is inviting you for a course on robotics and artificial intelligence. You'll be given a chance to get to know every step of a process where bunch of screws, a piece of metal, some simple electronic devices and hundreds lines of code come to life as the most awesome invention of the 20th century. And maybe, you will also construct your own robot, wouldn't it be great?

But the course isn't only about science, is it? You'll also have a chance to visit Warsaw, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. During the eleven days spent here, you'll have a great fun at the parties, you'll taste delicious polish dishes, such as pierogi, barszcz and racuchy, and essentially – get to know over twenty great people from all around the Europe. We don't know you yet, but certainly we'd love to, so see you this summer!
