Girls’ Day at Schlötter in Geislingen: Schoolgirls discover the world of electroplating and enjoy the famous Schlötter hamburger!”

On 25 April 2024, as part of Girls’ Day, Dr.-Ing. Max Schlötter GmbH & Co. KG in Geislingen opened its doors to twelve schoolgirls from Year 7 at Schubert Realschule and Year 9 at Tegelbergschule, both in Geislingen. Dr Stefanie Geldbach, one of the owners of Schlötter, gave the young visitors a warm welcome. The aim of the visit was to raise enthusiasm for professions such as surface coater and chemical laboratory assistant.

Women are still significantly underrepresented in the so-called MINT professions (maths, IT, natural sciences, technology). Many girls do not realise their potential in these areas and then opt for typically female professions. It was therefore important to Schlötter’s trainers to show interested schoolgirls a wide range of career options at an early stage of their career orientation.

The schoolgirls were given an insight into the fascinating world of surface coating and had the opportunity – in addition to “hands-on” experiments – to get a taste of our company in the technical centre, the SEM laboratory, the organic chemistry laboratory and the analytics department.
