Student's Quotes from Field Trip to Chicago

Science Museum Field Trip Poster On Friday, September 6, twenty eight Ivy Tech students and six faculty/staff visited the Museum of Science & Industry and Accenture in Chicago. Read about some of their experiences below.

"The museum was very educational in many ways: I learned a great deal about science and earth industry. The history aspect of the museum was also very neat. Seeing all the WWII exhibits was great." -- Jack H. 

"My favorite part of the museum was going inside the sub and learning it's role in the war. Seeing it in person was really eye opening." -- Evelyn G. 

"There are so many experiences and a wealth of knowledge available to us due to the sacrifices of others. All we have to do is be willing to learn." -- Sylvia B. 

"The museum experience was awesome and fascinating. Something that really caught my attention was the fractals in nature. The submarine was a profound experience....Accenture was totally mind boggling and beyond words. The technological advances was very, very impressive. The presentation was excellent! Thank you Carmen!" -- Dr. Jasmine

"The museum of science was just a wow factor! The real submarine was my favorite part of the whole museum but everything caught my eye. I bought souvenirs for myself and my family. The 3D pop-up mini-movies were also a plus.The Accenture was pretty cool as well! My favorite part of the whole tour was the green screen room and there new gadgets that only the company has." -- Sainquta J.

"I learned lots of new things about technology as well as all the different employment opportunities. I am actually interested in applying there."  --Jewleena W. 

"The beautiful young professionals were warm and so creative. They made a presentation just for Ivy Tech, with prizes for trivia answers. They were so open and cared about our comfort --lots of good snacks. The studio was impressive and the new technology center had a wall-sized interactive video screen. This tour was a real bonus to our day." --Marjie R. 

"I enjoyed everything about Accenture, but most of all I enjoyed the studio. I hope to have the opportunity to intern with Accenture." --Jerry H.
