Summer School «Robotics. Real-Life Applications of Intelligent Design»

We know the fact that in the 21st century people will be facing rapid changes. Every year reveals new and unprecedented opportunities for us, which can almost always be associated with the swift and independent development of technology.

Who would have thought that the futuristic word “robot” devised 100 years ago will become common and accustomed in today’s world? We are already accustomed to the fact that robots are all around us and sometimes we do not notice them, because we perceive them as an everyday phenomenon. Today almost every object or service in some way relates to robotics and we get used to robots and artificial intelligence. In fact, robots are everywhere: at our home, workplace, school, shops, cafes and even in our pockets.

Robotics. Real-Life Applications of Intelligent Design is a tailor-made summer/winter school that is created to unite students who share the same interest and passion in robotics. The school is a perfect place for all who are interested in learning about the whole process of creating a robot from the idea to the real functional and tangible result. During the whole educational process participants will be able to experience and participate in the whole process of robot development.

If you crave to understand robots, their potential and capacity and if you dare to build one of them by yourself – you are welcome to join Robotics. Real-Life Applications of Intelligent Design!
