About the Event


And there’s a million robots just like me 

Who work like me; who are ready to do your job like me 

Who look like me; walk, talk and act like me 

And just might be the next best thing but not quite me! 

– The robot you will make during our Course 



Do news, advancements and innovations in the field of robotics make you excited? Curious? Have you ever dreamt of making your own robot? 

If you answered „yes”, then our Course is definitely for you! Starting from the simplest gears, you will get to know the process and tools used to design robots and learn how they are applied in real life. By the end of our Course, you will design a robot of your own and build its mechanisms. Who knows – maybe these skills will lead to your future career? 

You will spend 8 days in our beautiful green city – Kaunas, surrounded by welcoming organisers and students from all over Europe. This is your chance to experience Lithuanian traditions and taste our food, exchange ideas, feel the BEST spirit and visit the G-spot of Europe! 

Does this sound like a wonderful way to start your autumn semester? Apply now and we’ll see you soon!
