Girls' Day in Science Gone Virtual

Last week, more than 170 high school girls got a chance to experience a variety of the exiting possibilities for education within science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in Aalborg University.

Female students and employees from the STEM field welcomed the girls and introduced them to the student life in a STEM education as well as exciting career options.

The girls also got the chance to get a more practical feeling of some of the interesting subjects within the STEM field through virtual workshops.

At the Department of Energy Technology, Student Counsellor Maria Maigaard Paulsen and Postdoc. Anna Lyhne Jensen took the participating girls on a virtual tour in the Flow Lab.

The girls were introduced to the problem of ice building up on wind turbine blades, and got to decide exactly what to measure in our wind tunnel.

We hope that the participating girls had a nice and inspiring experience in the new virtual format of Girls’ Say in Science!
