Girls and boys got an insight into careers that are traditionally “un-typical” for their gender
As in previous years, the Faculty of Communication and Environment participated in the Girls’ Day and Boys’ Day with a broad and interesting programme of activities that gave 35 girls and boys an insight into careers that are traditionally “un-typical” for their gender.
“The boys were introduced to the field of Industrial and Organisational Psychology where they explored the human brain and learned how to make thoughts visible. They carried out self-tests and practiced different methods used in Psychology”, explains Tammy Schmack, coordinator of the programme in Kamp-Lintfort.
The girls visited the high-tech workshop FabLab where they developed and sewed “intelligent” wristbands by using conductive threat and worked with electroluminescent diodes.
