Day 9: Harbin Institute of Technology

Tuesday, H.I.T. Day 2

Today we finished up our visit by touring around their Computer Science and Technology facility which is ranked 5th in the country. They get funding from companies such as Siemens, Rockwell Automation, Microsoft Research Asia, etc.

While touring a part of their campus, we saw little kids at day care exercising.

Here's a quick raw video of us, for the first time sitting at one table for lunch. We usually get split into two groups for lunch because the tables are not big enough to hold everyone.

Learn Chinese and Russian with Us
Yes, Russian too! As stated before, Harbin has a lot of Russian influence and so we decided to learn some Russian today.

Russian:
Hello - Privet (привет)
