Try it-Participants explore the Technical University Berlin, Projektron and the Technical Museum Berlin
From Wednesday on, 23 girls from eight federal states, who are enrolled in Femtec's Try it-programme, will have the chance to discover tomorrow’s world of work, learn about different courses of study in STEM subjects and speak with University students and female engineers. This year's Try it-workshop will include two site visits: First stop will be on Wedneday at Projektron, a successful Berlin based software company, and – for the third time in a row – named best employer in Berlin-Brandenburg. 50% of the 80 employees are female, a staggering percentage for a company in the IT sector. On Friday, the pupils of grades nine to eleven, will get an insider’s look into the workings of the famous Technical Museum Berlin, where they will learn about different job profiles and careers. They will also get a tour of the workshops of the Science Center Spectrum, where some of the museum’s exhibits are being built.
At the last Try it-workshop in fall 2014, young girls programmed their own App in the dEIn-Lab of the TU Berlin.
