Technology in Silicon Valley

Who could have predicted the way technology has changed the world affecting almost every part of our everyday lives. From the way we communicate, share information, watch TV, navigate - the world is changing fast. The pioneering companies that are responsible for these breakthroughs are innovative, creative, quirky, influential and have been extremely successful in building global brands, often at times bunking the traditional routes and following their own business development paths. The people who work for these companies are pioneering, imaginative and often mavericks who are provided with unique working environments and companies policies, which allows for the freedom to think outside of the box and to make those all important discoveries.

Our tours to Silicon Valley will provide an opportunity for students to see what it is like to work at a major technological company, see first hand how Silicon Valley has developed into a World hub of pioneering computer sciences and to visit the laboratories of Stanford University, The Googleplex Campus and Apple Company Store.

In addition to the technological studies, students will also be able to see World Heritage Sites that have made San Francisco one of the great cities – such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, China Town and Fisherman’s Wharf.
