Jan 24 – Thursday

Edit:  Today’s step counter was 14359 steps.

This morning the students had a liesure breakfast and some free time to explore the city of Bremen.   The two professors had a meeting at Airbus to coordinate some of the summer international internships.

In the afternoon we had a tour of the Mercedes Plant.  While we could not take pictures inside the factory it was an amazing site to see robots systematically putting various cars together.  The plant we were at produces 1400 cars every day all of them are customized to the special order of the customer.

It looks like this car may not be the right car for someone that is 6′-9″ tall.

Some students were excited to find that their parent’s credit card worked for a down payment…..
