Destination Highlights

Surrounded by mountain ranges, deep glacial lakes and year-round greenery, Seattle commands some of the most breathtaking views in the Pacific Northwest – it’s no wonder that cutting-edge companies like Amazon, Starbucks and Boeing decided to set up shop here. We invite students on a walking tour of the University of Washington for a glimpse into collegiate life. Take in the panoramic views out to the Olympic Mountains and other natural wonders from the Space Needle, while standing on the world’s first revolving glass floor. Explore the Museum of Pop Culture’s (MoPOP) current exhibits, expressing unique cultural experiences around every corner.

Discover the industry innovators of evolving technology in the greater Seattle area. We have set up a lecture at the UW campus with a Facebook engineer, who introduces students to the coding process behind this extremely popular social media service. On a walking tour of Amazon and a visit to an Amazon Go store, students get to see the future of shopping and imagine where technology will take us from here. See what emerging technology has become a reality at Microsoft’s Redmond headquarters on their Future of Tech Tour. Experience the latest in aircraft engineering on a tour of the largest building in the world by volume, Boeing Everett Factory, and watch the assembly of the 787 Dreamliner in action.

Educational experiences abound in Seattle, with so many opportunities to learn from the community and under the guidance of industry experts. Get to know the Seattle community of farmers and craftspeople at Pike Place Market on a scavenger hunt, encouraging teamwork and exploration. Engage students’ critical thinking skills in a workshop at Microsoft on coding and programming. While at Boeing, learn the building blocks of 3D printing, or robotics and engineering through an interactive workshop. Imagine all that students can achieve with these experiences at their fingertips.
