Students, technology, t-shirts, and… Answers.com.

This week, Answers.com CEO Bob Rosenschein spent some time chatting with over 100 visiting students/campers from across the United States. They were visiting as part of Camp Ramah‘s summer seminar in Israel – a program for 11th and 12th graders from across the United States exploring the country for six weeks.

Among the historical, archeological and traditional perspectives, the program wanted to share with its participants the technological view of the country; who better to give the verbal tour than Answers.com?

Bob’s talk included an entertaining history of the company, an introduction to Israeli technology and an inspirational word about making a difference.

And what more would a visiting student at Answers.com want, than some fashionable t-shirt-wear?
