Abstract

This paper presents activities carried on during a short course (five days long) offered to high school students devoted to autonomous yacht sailing. The main goal of the course is to expose high school students to several development techniques and technological solutions used to produce electronic controller systems and attracting them to STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) courses.
