Girls and computers? That fits! -The GirlsDay 2011 at the SMF KG? Priscille Mukumbu and Melanie Weissenborn were surprised by the demand, whether it was not uncommon to visit an IT company as a girl. On the contrary: for Angela and Melanie computer and girl not mutually at all. They visited the company with the great desire to learn more about the world of work around on the computer. Highly motivated thanks to their school computer science education and many private and practical experiences around the computer was clearly the decision for the IT sector and thus for the SMF KG. Supported and advised by the trainees of the SMF solved the two with much panache a specially developed IT crossword puzzle and lined up the tasks which have been provided. Without any reservations against all’ the IT professionals were they actively informed about open questions and visibly enjoyed the day off from school everyday.
Both had lots of fun at work and left the SMF thrilled. “Melanie Weissenborn is even sure: I will in any case what computers do, maybe as a programmer!” We wish all the best to the both of them for their career.
