Girls'Day at F+S

girls day wir machen mitOn March 28th 2019 the Girls'Day took place all over Germany. Each year, companies and organizations participate in around 10,000 events to support career orientation for girls, especially in so-called "men's jobs". F+S GmbH has also prepared for this year's Girls'Day to show 3 girls that SW development in the automotive sector is not just a male domain.

The girls between the ages of 13 and 15 came from secondary and high schools around Limburg, were very interested in technical subjects and had already considered a technical career path.

After a warm welcome, a guided tour of the company and a F+S presentation by the management, the girls were introduced to various practical topics of work at F+S by several employees: they were introduced to the work environment in embedded software development for the automotive industry, they got some first basic knowledge of Python and MATLAB programming and were able to experience a cluster instrument in a live demo. A practical experiment was also prepared and carried out: with the help of Raspberry Pi sensors, the girls took a series of measurements with and without preheated espresso cups, processed the data with a Python script and created a diagram. We did not expect the result either.

This brought an exciting day to an end, which also gave our F+S employees a lot of fun. We hope to have strengthened the girls in their interest in a technical profession and look forward to the Girls'Day 2020.
