The story of science will be a major focus of the tour, including the contemporary issues of urban planning, public transport and renewable energy, as well as the history of science.  The culture and history of Europe will provide students with valuable and provocative insights into the human condition.  Radford students will, in turn, be ambassadors for our country.
