While visiting Cruise on-site, students will have an opportunity to tour the autonomous vehicles facility for a hands-on look at their autonomous vehicle technology! There will be an opportunity to meet Cruisers from various backgrounds that help make it possible to have driverless vehicles on the road. Students will also learn about the culture at Cruise, and how Cruise impacts the communities that their vehicles are in, through projects like their meal delivery program and FIRST Robotics sponsorships. Students will participate in a small-group activity to explore the abilities of this technology and the challenges of devising a self-driving car, as well as a Q&A session with a panel of Cruisers. All students who attend will receive Cruise swag!
