Student Trips to Silicon Valley
Silicon Valley is the centre for global giants in technology, capitalism, innovation and social media. As the home of Facebook, Apple and Google, a student trip to Silicon Valley is an unrivalled destination for pupils of computer science. But there’s plenty more digital companies that started in San Francisco, from Dropbox and Pinterest to Twitter and Netflix; it’s undoubtedly the global hub for technology start-ups and digital inspiration.
Any educational visit will include a tour of technology pioneers in Silicon Valley, along with visiting a selection of technology museums to see the world’s very first computers; and gain an insight into how far the industry has come since the very first computers in the 1940s and 1950s.
Aside from the technology visits, San Francisco is home to the famed Golden Gate Bridge. Reportedly, the most famous bridge in the world and one of the most photographed landmarks on Earth, no sixth form or college visit to San Francisco would be complete without visiting this iconic attraction.
Also synonymous with San Francisco, is its infamous former prison, Alcatraz. Historically, some of the United States’ most notorious criminals imprisoned were there, and many prisoners tried and failed to escape “the Rock”. Now open to the viewing public, it’s a fascinating cultural tour for any students visiting San Francisco.
