GirlsDay 2021: Battery researcher for one day


GirlsDay 2021: Ulm University has a wide program

This year’s GirlsDay turned out to be a little different than in times before the corona pandemic. Traditionally, the GirlsDay participants were given a personal insight into the day-to-day research of a scientist and a guided tour of the laboratory. This year the organizer Dr. Sarah Pfeffer, educational assistant at ZAWiW, digitally through the program.

The guided tour of the institute and the personal conversation with the researchers took place via livestream. Katrin Geng, master’s student at Ulm University answered questions from the participants and provided information about the current status of battery research.

General information about GirlsDay

Girls’ and Boys’Days are nationwide days of action that take place once a year and are intended to open up new perspectives for the future of girls and boys. The aim is to motivate girls for technical and scientific careers and boys for careers in the social, health and care sectors. On this day, the girls get to know apprenticeships and courses of study in IT, craft, natural sciences and technology, in which women have so far been rarely represented and they meet female role models in management positions. For boys, too, in addition to professional exploration in the social, educational or nursing fields, it is about reflecting on male role models, the variety of lifestyles and the question of whether the model of the male sole breadwinner is long out of date.

The Ulm University, the RKU and the Ulm Clinic have also been involved in Girls’ & amp; Boys’ Day and organize a joint introductory event. The Helmholtz Institute Ulm (HIU) also opens its doors on this day and traditionally gives an insight into their current work and research. Girls’Day and Boys’Day at Ulm University are coordinated and carried out by the Ulm 3-Generation University of the ZAWiW.
