ESME Summer School definitely exceeded my expectations, it was a perfect ratio of knowledge, science and fun. The staff and the professors were the nicest and made sure each and every one of us felt good and were always there to help us with anything.KAUSHIKA / SUMMER SCHOOL STUDENT – JULY 2019
We were able to explore quite a number of places along with learning to create a robot from scratch, which definitely brought all the students closer and definitely gave us something we would remember forever. In my opinion, it’s an experience of a lifetime which one should definitely go for.
