Six girls of school classes 9 and 10 of the Frankenthal Karolinen Gymnasium (grammar school) and one schoolgirl of the Carlowitz Realschule (secondary school) of Weisenheim am Berg visited our company on Girls' Day 2019 on 28 March in order to gain some insight into a medium-sized software company.
The girls experienced an exciting day in our company. On the one hand, they already received information on what makes up Fasihi GmbH while being welcomed by Fasihi employee Pia Achilles. On the other hand, they could take their first steps to familiarize with programming using HTML and Calliope mini under the guidance of Marius Pollmer, head of Fasihi Academy.
Chief executive Saeid Fasihi explained two important terms regarding the interaction with human and computer. The girl's name "EVA" explains, so to say, the computer world in a simple way. EVA = Eingabe (enter), Verarbeitung (processing), Ausgabe (output).
Moreover, there is a term named "BEUS", which stands for "Beziehung (relation), Element (element), Umwelt (environment), System (system) and explains the difference between human and computer.
In addition, Pia Achilles had prepared an interesting task for the group. The girls were asked to assign important events in the history of women's rights, and in doing so they created a timeline.
After a joint lunch, there was a guided tour through the offices and a short visit of the new company building, which is currently under construction on Ludwig-Reichling-Straße in Ludwigshafen.
Then, the schoolgirls met an alumna of a dual study course and the head of Java development, Vanessa Schäfer, who informed them about their professional experiences. The girls were particularly impressed by what Vanessa Schäfer told them about her computer science studies at the Kaiserslautern University of Technology (TU Kaiserslautern).
The future day for girls represents the largest project for career orientation of this kind. Among other things, the Girls'Day is promoted by the Federal Ministry of Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ) as well as the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). It had officially been opened on 27 March by Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel.
