Simon was a part of the 2018 Germany GEARE cohort. He had his first engineering internship in Bonn where he learned more about what he wanted from his career. Then during the summer, he took some aerospace classes at Technical University of Braunschweig where he took full advantage of having more free time by traveling all around Eastern Europe.
One piece of advice he would give to GEARE students going to Germany is to make sure not to walk on the bike lane! Biking is very popular in Germany and a bike lane was seen on every sidewalk while he was there.
