It´s not only a man´s world - Girls Day 2015 at EDAG
Automobile development is exciting - and definitely not an exclusively male domain!
We were therefore happy to welcome over 90 young girls, potential future engineers, to our facilities in Fulda, Ingolstadt, Sindelfingen, Munich and Wolfsburg, and give them the opportunity to see for themselves what the fascinating world of engineering is all about.
Not only did the girls find answers to the question "how is a car actually developed?"; they were also able to play an active role themselves. The 35 participants in Fulda each built an acrylic model car, completely wired it, and then painted it according to their individual taste. In Sindelfingen and Munich, initial drawing and design exercises were on the agenda, to give the girls a hands-on experience of the job of a technical product designer. In the acoustic chamber, where the "musical vehicle body" was presented, they discovered that it is important to be able to hear well in vehicle development.
"I want to do something with cars when I've finished school!" said a 13-year-old participant at the Girls Day events in Fulda. We couldn't hope for a better result. For each of the girls visiting EDAG, the day ended with a great experience, new knowledge, and enormous interest in vehicle development. And above all, the realisation that engineering has nothing to do with what gender you are.
