  • Overview

    New York is one of the most exciting cities in the world, at the forefront of world culture and finance, so it goes without saying that it takes a certain level of technology to keep a city like that going, which makes it an ideal destination for students of ICT and computer science.

    In addition to its many museums and art galleries, iconic landmarks and Broadway shows students of computer science can get hands-on at Microsoft's recently opened flagship store which offers fantastic workshops on coding, game and app creation.  They could explore the New York Transit Museum to learn how technology has transformed the city infrastructure or head to the New York Hall of Science and visit the technology centre.  Whatever you are interested in there is something for everyone and you can not fail to please your students and inspire them with a visit to the city that never sleeps.
