The retreat allows the Fellows to discuss their current research and forge relationships that will continue throughout their careers. Mike Montemerlo was the "Scientist in Residence" and presented his research on Robotic Technology. The group enjoyed many outdoor activities and discussions with Hertz Foundation Directors regarding ways to enhance the Fellowship program.
