Girls‘ Day at Harro Höfliger

At the Girls‘ Day event, female students were able to gain an insight into the work environment of a mechanical engineering company.

Technical professions are also open to girls.

Technology is not a male domain: On Girls’ Day at Harro Höfliger, the students were able to gain experience in soldering, among other things.

Just try out activities such as soldering.

Girls’ Day offers the opportunity to discover careers in technical professions, IT, craft and natural sciences.

From school desk to workbench: Girls‘ Day 2018.

The Girls’ Day event wants to encourage female students to try out technical professions.

This year, Harro Höfliger once again took part in the nationwide Girls‘ Day and presented the participants with future-oriented careers in which women are often still underrepresented.

For the students there was a lot to discover during their first visit to a machine manufacturer. During a tour of the headquarters in Allmersbach im Tal, they learned about the various tasks in the areas of  design, assembly and control technology – and were able to convince themselves on site that mechanical engineering at Harro Höfliger is not purely a male domain. The eighth-graders were impressed by the results of this teamwork, the completely assembled, high-precision production and packaging machines in the factory halls. A practical task was also waiting for the students: At the HH Academy, they made their own workpieces using soldering irons and tin.

The Girls‘ Day aims to offer girls and young women a wide range of career opportunities and to motivate them to enter the fields of natural science, technology and craft in accordance with their talents. For Girls’ Day participant Lara, the path she wants to take after graduating from high school is already set: It definitely should be “something with computers”.
