MISA Field Trip
April 19th, 2014 (7:15 - 6 PM)

We have some important information regarding our MISA field trip for those of you who are interesting in attending this semester. After contrasting the benefits of multiple venues, we have chosen to attend the Intel Museum in Santa Clara and the Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose. 

Come explore the history of Intel and how they became the industry giant they are today! More information can be found at the official Intel page, found here. Then we'll explore the latest technologies hands-on at the Tech Museum of Innovation, including virtual technology simulators and robots! More information on this museum can be found here.

The field trip date is set on April 19th, 2014. Due to venue rules and availability of space, we are limited to a maximum attendee count of 20 people total, including leaders. Attendance will be determined by the number of prior MISA meetings attended. For example, a member who has attended 3 meetings will have priority over someone who has been to only 2. We will be carpooling together in our personal vehicles. All attendees who wish to carpool must meet on campus by 7:15 AM. Meeting location is TBA but more information will be available once we get a measure of interest. We will be leaving at 7:30 AM and will return at roughly 6 PM.

If you are interested in attending, you MUST notify us asap by email (info@misasacramento.org) before Friday of this week. When we will notify you to confirm your spot for the trip, you must fill out and submit the university travel waiver to us by April 8th to be eligible to attend. A $10.00 deposit will be taken as collateral to reserve your seat. This amount will be returned to you on the date of the trip to ensure your attendance. No-shows will not be refunded.

Minor details are subject to change. Feel free to contact us with any questions regarding the field trip.
