My favorite parts of the program were the cultural experiences specifically the Hobbiton tour, black sand beach, glowworm night hike, and Mt. Egmont and Sugarloaf hikes. They added spice to the usual industry visits and gave the opportunity to meet new people and experience natural New Zealand. For the industries: Methanex, Gladstone Vineyard, and Massey University were the most stimulating, interesting, and engaging of the visits.

The New Zealand Steel Plant was my favorite industry to visit. It was also the longest one but the people there were really excited about their jobs and it was incredible to see how the steel was being made! It was a plant that you could see and be pretty close to the material that was being made. Sometimes we were so close you could feel the heat of the steel.
