Why does your smartphone do what you want it to do? What is the work of a physics laboratory assistant, transport engineer, or technical product designer? What are the smallest particles in the universe? Answers and information on the corresponding studies and vocational training programs will be given to girls on the Girls’ Day 2021 on Thursday, April 22, 2021, at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Girls from the 5th year of all types of schools will then have the opportunity to attend a number of presentations and workshops and learn more about the fields of work and jobs in STEM subjects at KIT.
