Twenty girls from secondary schools in Freising and Landshut, Germany, visited TI Freising this spring to get a behind-the-scenes look at careers in engineering. This was the 10th time that TI had participated in the nationwide Girls' Day in Germany.
“The Girls' Day is a great forum to raise awareness for the fact that there are still too few women in technical professions,” said Dr. Wolfram Tietscher, vice president, Europe and managing director of Texas Instruments Germany GmbH. “We want to offer the girls a first contact with the technology in a playful way and show them the variety of careers in our industry.”
Girls' Day was started to give girls insight into jobs that are traditionally male-dominated. The aim is to raise interest in technology professions, such as engineering, by having girls visit technology companies across Germany.
Among the highlights of this year's TI Freising Girls' Day event were a site tour and several hands-on sessions.
TI staff from various departments explained their daily work as engineers and developers and in sales or customer support. During the site tour, the girls were shown the production area and could put their technical skills to the test by creating a fully functional electronic cube by soldering resistors and a switch to a prepared board.
