On Thursday 25.4, girls from different schools took part in our Girl’s Day event at IABP, in cooperation with Institute of Landscape Planning and Ecology as well as the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics. The Researchers shared their knowledge with the young students and gave insight on the science behind the facade-systems.
The tour started by briefly introducing different insects and how they are affected by the built environment, then the students were later presented with our UnaTerra green façade at Pfaffenwaldring 9.
The girls aged from 10 to 12 years old, had fun experimenting with the thermal camera and learning about the effects of building materials on the natural environment
Afterwards, the girls headed to Fraunhofer institute where they had a guided tour by Pia Krause, and learned about our latest innovative green façade; Bio-Div/ Wild Climate Wall.
At the end, the girls expressed their overall satisfaction with the workshop, and even made their own creative tiny insect hotels to take home.
Girl’s day is considered the largest career orientation project for female students. IABP is grateful to be take part of this event and to be actively supporting young girls in their educational and professional journey.
