This year, a group of ten girls from the Aachen region attended "Girls' Day” at E.ON Energy Research Center. They visited various workshops on the topic “Practical Exercises on Energy! Learn, Experience and Have Fun!” Each institute at E.ON ERC designed an experiment or creative workshop in which the girls were able to learn more about the different fields of research as well as the challenges of sustainable energy and the need for interdisciplinary work.

In their experiments, the girls not only learned where bad air in buildings comes from, but also put their knowledge of energy to the test in a quiz. Furthermore, the problems of the energy supply of the future were shown by means of an attractive model landscape with a wind farm. The fourth area of the research center showed the students how to hear and see electricity.
