LEGO Robotics to Conquer the World

General description

Have you got this genius plan to conquer the world, while sitting in your armchair, controlling your army of superb killer robots? Is your plan bulletproof but you only lack of the knowledge to program them?

Stay tuned; on this Summer Course you will learn to program a LEGO Mindstorm robot, and you will finally be able to execute your evil plan.
