05/07/2014 "Girls’ Day" at Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH
On this year's "Girls' Day", which was held on March 27, Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH opened its doors to school girls for the sixth time. In total, 20 girls aged 10 to 14 years from schools in ther egion of Lindenberg (Germany) took the opportunity to spend a day finding out about the company and about working in technical professions. How is a landing gear system developed and manufactured? While touring the different stations of the Lindenberg plant − from design to production to final assembly – the participants got tothe bottom of this question. Members of staff from technical product design, industrial mechanics, surface coating and materials testing were at hand to answer questions and to engage in discussions. The girls found out just how exciting technology and science can be in practice while building their own miniature model aircraft. The objectives of Girls' Day are to introduce girls to the subject of technology, to get them interested in technical professions and to give them contact to relevant companies, training institutions, universities and research centers.
