Our Cluster of Excellence also participated in the Germany-wide Girls’ Day on 25 April: 15 girls visited the e-conversion laboratories.

Under the guidance of female scientists, the participants gained a comprehensive insight into the everyday life of a researcher, the lab, and the high-tech equipment. The focus was primarily on energy and sustainability topics such as green hydrogen production and innovative solar energy use. The Girls’ Day at e-conversion offered the girls an inspiring opportunity to experience the fascinating world of science up close, get a taste of the laboratory atmosphere, and explore possible career paths in MINT subjects.
