Beijing & Shanghai Computer Science

Prices from: £1,459

China is waiting for your next Computer Science school trip.  The vast nation of China often conjures images of the Great Wall of China, historical figures and a deep rooted cultural mix.  An Adaptable Travel school trip to China will allow you experience these in depth. However China is fast emerging as the technological leader of the world, now positioned as the foremost space nation, producing much of Silicon Valleys hardware and leading the way in science, technology and computing.

On an Adaptable Travel educational tour to China your group will be able to explore the technological side of Beijing and Shanghai, and how this fits neatly into the new cultural identity forming. Not only will your group visit some of the incredible famous sites, but also explore technology companies, Zhongguancun, China’s own ‘Silicon Valley’ and Shanghai, one of the most futuristic cities in the world.  Students will be able to explore how science and computing has enabled China to experience a boom, whilst understanding how business in China ticks, something that could prove pivotal in later life.

Adaptable Travel trips to China are all bespoke, but we aim to provide a complete itinerary that will include all aspects of your tour, including all transport, accommodation, food and guided visits for a complete, immersive China tour experience.
