A look at Girls' Day and Boys' Day 2019
In 2019, around 100 pupils took part in Girls' Day and Boys' Day at the Hereon in Geesthacht, Hamburg, and Teltow and were given a chance to take a look behind the scenes.
On the campus in Geesthacht, nearly 50 girls had a look at the everyday work at the institutes and in the laboratories, workshops as well as in administration. The programme comprised seven different projects. For example, the girls got to see research on ocean currents and experimental chemistry. Some “worked” as apprentices in the purchasing department and others were able to programme their own games apps in IT.
Another project took place at DESY in Hamburg, where seven girls learned about X-ray imaging and tomography in Materials Research.
At the Hereon location in Teltow, Girls' Day and Boys' Day took place simultaneously. Exciting hands-on experiments awaited the pupils in the laboratories at the Institute of Biomaterial Science. The girls got to know different fields of activity in chemistry and the boys in biology. During a tour of the institute, the girls were able to follow polymers from production and processing to medically relevant shape-memory polymers, while the boys gained insights into cell biology and microscopy.
