Seven motivated girls from the region visited the E.ON Energy Research Center on "Girls' Day - Girls' Future Day" again this year, as they have since 2009. The employees of the research center had exciting workshops on the topic " Practical exercises on the topic of energy! Learn, try, have fun!" to introduce the participants to the different research areas as well as the changes brought about by sustainable energy and the requirements of interdisciplinary work.

In their experiments, the girls not only learned about where bad air in buildings comes from, but also put their knowledge of energy to the test in a quiz. Furthermore, the interaction between electricity production and electricity consumption in the grid was shown by means of an attractive model landscape. The fourth area of the research center showed the students how to hear and see electricity.
