Tell me how you move, I'll tell you what to build!

General description

Have you always wondered what your tennis racket or your golf stick is made from? How a bicycle or a badminton racket is build? Which criteria determine their design?


There is only ONE answer!

Join us here for the course: "Tell me how you move, I'll tell you what to build!"

This year's crazy course will be all about where, what and how are sports materials made of. We'll go from the theory behind it all the way to the laboratories with a very kind & proactive teacher!

Find the material

> Process it the way you want

> > Dimension it

> > > Test it in laboratories

So, if you are ready to:

* Find out how objects around you are created

* Taste the best specials beers in the world. By the way, did you know that there are more than 1300 different beers in Belgium?

* Visit the capital of Europe!

* Spend (for sure) the craziest week of your summer holiday in Belgium. Yes, we might be a small country but a MIGHTY one. Be ready for the BEST fries ever, the craziest parties you'd normally only heard about, the manneken pis (google it you will see :-)

Then you have no choice: APPLY APPLY APPLY :)

We want YOU to take part in this amazing Summer Course 2013 in Louvain la Neuve. For sure you will not regret it!!!
