 As part of the 'Manus Et Machina'​ course we look into the development of art, design, and technology, and try to see how it evolves over time. The field trip brings us to important and very interesting sites around the UAE that will let us reflect on what we have learned and discussed so far: What is technology? What are technologies earliest representations?​ How did art and design help us to develop our society? Where do we come from, and where will we evolve to? We will visit prehistoric archaeological sites, will make fire with sticks, walk through a wadi to reach an antique watch tower, we will go on a scorpion safari using UV-flashlights,​ will learn about the water system of date farms, we will see the Dubai Fountain show (from another perspective),​ will make stone arrow heads, and try out a new VR application on top of an old emirati fortress. As part of the 'Manus Et Machina'​ course we look into the development of art, design, and technology, and try to see how it evolves over time.
