General description

Embedded Systems are everywhere. Every time you look

your watch, answer the phone, take a picture, or turn on the TV you are interacting

with an embedded system. Embedded systems are also found in cars, airplanes,

and robots.

In this event what we offer you is the unique chance to Learning how to program Embedded Systems, that is a critical skill, necessary for many industries and scientific jobs. We will use the Arduino open source platform, which is an inexpensive, popular embedded system used by hobbyists, researchers, and industries, to implement the techniques learned in class.

If you would make this kind of experience … COME TO MESSINA! The city lying on the Strait of Messina that Goethe described as "the land of lemons in flower where the golden oranges glow among the dark leaves", where the weather is hotter and people are awesome!

You will also have the possibility to spend some time in an holiday site where white sandy beaches and blue crystalline seas have nothing to envy to Malibu beaches and where also you will be asked to get familiar with young local habits: many sunbathing and wonderful swims during the day and wonderful swims again wormed up by bonfire and music during the night!

..Don't you like the Sicilian heat especially when too close to the sea?! Don't worry guys!

We can satisfy everyone's like: you will be taken at about two thousand meters above sea level enjoying some breath-taking landscapes..

..Haven't we met your wishes yet?!? No problem!

How to resist to the irreplaceable Sicilian dishes?

There is no need to add anything else.
