Last week, business and entrepreneurship students visited the South San Francisco headquarters of Zipline, which manufactures and operates delivery drones for medical supplies as well as offering services for restaurants, food delivery and more.
During their visit, the students met with Harker alum Anika Banga ’18, who spoke to the students about her role at Zipline as an embedded software engineer, her experiences as a student at Carnegie Mellon and her years as a Harker student. The students also received a tour of the headquarters and its manufacturing line, and spoke with Zipline’s talent and internship team.
“This experience for me was about getting to know the different opportunities out there, and I really enjoyed learning about the business side of Zipline,” said Arushi Sahasi, grade 9.
Grade 9 student Claire Yu also found the visit illuminating. “It was really cool seeing how things worked within a startup company and also learning about possible opportunities after high school. Learning about the different technical parts of the UAV was really fun too,” she said.
