14 Floors - The Silicon Valley Experience
Four days, 12 visits, 28 hours of company tours—Silicon Valley Experience puts 20 students smack-dab in the middle of high-tech. But one week isn’t enough. One place isn’t enough. So the experience powered since 2011 by fellow Huskies and friends of Michigan Tech has a new name—14 Floors. And it’s going nationwide.
