A quote of Nina Makoshina, a computer science teacher, a participant of the project: "We were happy for the course to be practical. We tried 3D printing, learned to solder contacts, assemble and program robots on Arduino. The teachers explained in detail how a project is created and showed examples of their students' work. The course isn't over yet. There will be a project defence in the autumn, which we are all looking forward. I'm very glad that I have been able to attend the course. It's a unique and interesting experience!"
