San Francisco
Home to some of the world’s most recognizable technology companies, it’s no surprise that San Francisco has a thriving science, technology, engineering, and math culture. Experience both sides of this tech-friendly region—hardware and software; art and science; city and nature; Silicon Valley and San Francisco—as you explore local museums, university campuses, and hands-on workshops. During your tour of the Bay, you’ll discuss conservation in a redwood forest, dream about your future while visiting Stanford, and explore the artsy side of tech with a visit to the Autodesk Gallery.
