In Close Contact with Bits and Bytes: Girls’ Day 2009 at the MPIfG
At the occasion of the national Girls’ Day on April 23, eight technically inclined girls took the opportunity to learn more about training to become an "IT system integration specialist." The pupils from grades 6 to 9 even had hands on: In the practical part of the program, they dismantled computers into their components and then reassembled them. It is now the sixth time that the MPIfG has taken part in this initiative, which is sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and aims to give girls a better understanding of technical and technology-related occupations.
