On this day, girls are invited to have a look at companies operating in the fields of IT, crafts trades, science and technology and find out whether they could be considered for an exciting professional future.
In an interactive conversation, the Design Team will demonstrate how the design of a website or an app influences user behaviour. This conversation will be followed by a practical exercise where they are shown how to consistently and purposefully use design in an app or on a website. Last year, the participants developed a Justin Bieber web shop.
Coding (i.e. programming) is a very important element of IT and the core task of our partner ThoughtWorks. Every week, the team members meet for a "RoboNight" where they build small robots and teach them behaviours like for example identifying colours.
And that is precisely what the Girls' Day participants will do: they will experiment with microcontrollers and LEDs, write a code to simulate traffic lights and teach the robots to follow a line.
