Once again, the Helmholtz Institute Ulm offered an individual program for the annual “Girls’Day” at the University of Ulm. This year, HIU organized the day together with the POLiS Cluster of Excellence. The day of action is intended to motivate girls and young women to take up technical and scientific professions. For the battery science institutes at Ulm University campus, it offers the opportunity to present career paths in typical “male professions” (chemistry, physics, mechanical engineering, etc.) to girls and young women.
Aufgepasst, Schülerinnen und Schüler: Noch bis 20. April könnt ihr euch für die Angebote des #GirlsDay und #BoysDay am 27. April an der #uulm, @UniklinikUlm und RKU anmelden. Alle Infos: https://t.co/4bxiCE9HyO *cl/Foto: Daniela Stang pic.twitter.com/lJVRjXw7W4

Four schoolgirls visited the POLiS research laboratories at Lise-Meitner-Strasse in Ulm’s SciencePark. Doctoral student Monika Vogler showed the new MAP systems (“Materials Acceleration Platform”), in which battery materials are researched and optimized in high-throughput research using robotics.
The young people showed great interest and were able to ask Prof. Dr. Birgit Esser about career opportunities in battery research and science.
