LAPP awakens girls' interest for MINT professions
Girls' Day: Schoolgirls explore career prospects in MINT areas(PresseBox) ( Stuttgart, )
In two exciting workshops 16 schoolgirls between the ages of ten and 19 were able to experience how LAPP moves from brainstorming to the finished product and what working in IT could be like. In the first workshop the schoolgirls invented their own product and two LAPP product managers were on hand to explain the process so that the girls could proudly present their new product developments at the end of the first workshop. From the product development department they went directly to the IT department where the girls created their own e-learning tool in a second workshop. For them, it was also exciting to see the making of a cable which the girls could observe during a guided tour through LAPP's cable works.
Afterwards, they also had the opportunity to ask questions to the human resources department and thus take a closer look at LAPP as a potential employer and establish contacts for internships and training. "The feedback from the schoolgirls was consistently positive and the girls said that they had a clearer idea of what working in a MINT profession would be like," reports Nicole Maric, personnel officer at LAPP, and explains: "Although girls in Germany are very well educated, they rarely take up scientific or technical apprenticeships. For this reason, we at LAPP invite schoolgirls to visit us especially on this day to show them exciting perspectives in professions in which women tend to be underrepresented.”
