CeramTec Celebrates Girls’ Day at Four Locations
Girls’ Day is a Germany-wide initiative where companies, businesses and universities open their doors to give girls a taste of traineeships and degrees in IT, trade, technology, and science.
At this year’s Girls’ Day, an initiative designed to give girls in the 5th grade and above an insight into technical professions, four CeramTec locations in Germany presented themselves to potential future candidates. The program varied from location to location.
Together with their trainee supervisors, the girls visiting the training workshop at CeramTec’s Lauf location created a ball game toy with great enthusiasm. In the Fichtel Mountains, the Girls’ Day group found out something about the traineeships available at the Marktredwitz location. Over the course of the day, they learned about the design of pneumatic control systems, saw CNC machines in operation and had the chance to manufacture their own pen holder and peg solitaire board. At the Lohmar location, the girls explored the Production, Laboratory and Dispatch departments, and got to see how exciting the work is there. In Plochingen, things also took a pragmatic turn: under the guidance of the trainees, all participants designed their own bracelet with an individual print. This involved the use of various machines where the girls could prove their craftsmanship.
Girls’ Day is a Germany-wide initiative where companies, businesses and universities open their doors to give girls a taste of traineeships and degrees in IT, trade, technology, and science. Next year, Girls’ Day will take place on March 26.
