On the Microsoft Campus Field Trip, you’ll:
Take a Campus Bus Tour
Field trip participants will be picked up at the Convention Center and will travel by bus to the Microsoft Redmond campus. Once on campus, you’ll experience a guided driving tour to see where some of the most landmark developments in Microsoft’s history have originated.
Explore the Commons
After the bus tour, you’ll have an opportunity to explore the heart of the campus. The Commons, the new “town center” of Microsoft’s Redmond campus, features a variety of retail dining options, convenience services, meeting spaces, and sports facilities—all situated in an inviting urban-market atmosphere.
Visit the Microsoft Visitor Center
Walk through the doors of the Microsoft Visitor Center and you are surrounded by the sights, sounds, and demonstrations of the same idea: Microsoft believes that everyone in the world has potential and that great software can help you realize that potential.
Once inside, you can explore the vision, products, culture, and history of Microsoft. The exhibits display everything from the latest Microsoft Research innovations to the very first personal computer. Explore hands-on exhibits featuring some of the company’s most exciting technologies for home and business.
