GIRLS' DAY 2019: Schoolgirls as guests at Fasihi
Six girls from classes 9 and 10 of the Karolinen Gymnasium in Frankenthal and one student from the Von Carlowitz Realschule plus in Weisenheim am Berg visited our company to gain interesting insights into a medium-sized software company on Girls'Day 2019 on 28 March.
The girls experienced an exciting day in our company. On the one hand, they received information about the business of Fasihi GmbH from Fasihi employee Pia Achilles already during the welcome. On the other hand, they could then familiarise themselves with the first steps of programming with HTML and the Calliope mini under the guidance of Marius Pollmer, head of the Fasihi Academy.
Managing Director Saeid Fasihi explained two important terms in the interaction between humans and computers to the students. The girl's name "EVA" explains the computer world in a simple way, so to speak. EVA = input, processing, output.
In addition, there is the term "BEUS". It stands for "relationship, element, environment, system" and explains the difference between humans and computers.
A group task that Pia Achilles had worked out was also interesting. The girls had to assign important events in the history of women's rights and thus work out a timeline together.
After lunch together, there was a guided tour of the offices and a short visit to the new company building, which is currently being built in Ludwig-Reichling Straße in Ludwigshafen.
Afterwards, the schoolgirls were informed by a former dual student and the department head of Java development, Vanessa Schäfer, about their professional experiences. The girls were particularly impressed by what Vanessa Schäfer told them about her computer science studies at the TU Kaiserslautern. In addition, there was a live demo on augmented reality - a mobile app "to touch", so to speak.
Girls' Future Day is the largest career orientation project of its kind worldwide. Girls' Day is funded by the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ) and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). It was officially opened on 27 March by Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel.
