If you want to learn Robotics AND Lisp, Dr. Perkowski teaches a Robotics
class (Usually in the Winter & Spring terms in the PSU ECE dept) in which
he uses a good amount of Lisp (he's a big fan of Lisp). A class
like that might either be a lot more than you bargained for or it might
actually be a great way of learning Lisp by applying it to an interesting
topic right away.
