’’Under the Hood’’

General description

Do you love cars?

Do you think you're brave enough to look "under the hood" and stay there for 9 days?

Are you curious, crazy, weird engineer in a pursuit of an amazing summer days with Pljeskavica and Rakija on the shore of Danube river?

If your answer to these questions is yes, than you are just in the right place!

Experience Novi Sad during Exit time. Discover what is so special about Sarma and Ajvar, and uncover the BEST time of your life. Find out why do you need to cross the Rainbow to come to the Fortress and what mythical creature has a Serbian name.

But that is not all! You will get to learn new things about automotive and find out the true power of friction. See in practice how do certain parts of vehicles work and what connects them all. Explore vehicle communication systems and vehicle control principles.

The complexity of the course will be kept to a fairly basic level such that students from different backgrounds can apply for the course.

Only one mouse click is between you and all of this. Be brave, be fearless and come to our hood! :)
