The group visited the world’s largest science and technology museum, The Deutsches Museum in Munich, which holds 100,000 artifacts from many disciplines.
They ventured underground in a salt mine near Salzburg with a rich engineering past dating back centuries. Students toured a BMW manufacturing factory that combines innovation and performance. And they visited Vauban a neighborhood to the south of the town center in Freiburg, Germany, that is a model of sustainability.
Every stop on the trip sought to encourage students to dream big about the contributions they can make.
