Girls' Day

We want to get more girls interested in vocational training in technology and handwork. With MiTH female school students in grades nine and ten can gain a practical look at the typically masculine careers, in order to possibly choose an occupation in this field later on.


We will gather together comprehensive information materials for you and schedule appointments that are specifically tailored to your needs: presentations, facility tours, or Q & A sessions with our trainers. Here is a brief overview of possible advising offers and topics.
