Audi Ingolstadt Girls For Technology Camp 2019
At Audi Ingolstadt, the opportunity of experiencing the world of technology was given to 14 schoolgirls from all over Bavaria, who attended Audi Girls for Technology Camp. Ranging from ages 12 to 14, girls were able to ‘become’ apprentices at Audi for a week during the summer holidays.
At the camp, the girls were able to investigate exactly what a technical career at Audi looks like. They were able to produce work pieces during various projects during the camp. From building a model of an original Audi quattro with LED lights, to looking at the various technical careers at Audi. The students were able to talk about vocational training at Audi with apprentices and trainers from the areas of body and vehicle construction, production mechanics and mechatronics.
“During the ‘Girls for Technology Camp,’ participants got to experience fascinating technical careers for themselves. We show them how multifaceted these professions really are. We encourage them to actually choose a technical career because this increases their options enormously.”
Dieter Omert, Head of Vocational Training and Technical Competence Development at Audi
At the end of the five-day camp, the students presented project work at the closing ceremony and stated their experiences in front of their parents, teachers, company representatives and the facilitators of the project.
The “Girls for Technology Camp” was launched the in 2002 by the “Technology – The Future in Bavaria 4.0.” educational initiative. Audi has been involved from the beginning and invited participants for the 17th time this year for girls to experience the fascination of technical professions firsthand. The project is supported by the Educational Association of the Bavarian Economy (Bildungswerk der Bayerischen Wirtschaft (bbw) e.V.).
