Hands-on impressions for young girls at the Girls' Day

29 Mar 2014 - Mainz - Company-News

Watch the pros at work and even lend a hand - Werner & Mertz once again allowed a group of young students to gain hands-on experience of what are otherwise regarded as male-dominated professions at this year’s Girls' Day. 16 participants from years five to nine of schools in Mainz, but also from the Hildegardis school in Bingen, Kurt-Schumacher comprehensive school in Ingelheim and the Humboldt school in Wiesbaden joined the action day for girls in the administration building of the family business.

The pupils took part in a tour of the production line and other work locations on the works premises in Mainz. They were given useful tips and valuable information on professions such as electronics technician, chemical technician, industrial mechanic and mechatronics technician. Some trainees of Werner & Mertz presented their professions in detail and answered the visitors’ questions.

A practical exercise catered for fun and excitement. The participants were allowed to granulate, drill and file, and thus test their technical skills in the production of a paperweight. The students even faced the challenge of reading a technical drawing and were shown how to do so by the experts. Photo: W&M

Whether in the plant or the in-house training workshop, the interest of the students was very high and the future recruits had a great time.
