Aidar partners with Mercedes-Benz project ‘Girls GO Technology’
We started the New Year full of energy, encouraged by the positive end of the previous one. Among the recent events that made us very happy was our participation in an edifying project with Mercedes-Benz Manufacturing Poland, Girls GO Technology, which Aidar joined as one of the project partners. In December, we had the honour of acting as trainers at a VR workshop as part of the fifth edition of this project.
This is a beautiful, incredibly important, and needed skilling action for girls from the Mercedes-Benz factory area in Jawor. The #GirlsGOTechnology is not a recruitment project, but an educational one. A series of workshops introducing knowledge about technology and showing its latest applications aims to convince girls and women in Jawor that women can become digitally competent and excel in professions that are seen as ‘masculine’ and well-paid STEM industries. The Mercedes-Benz campaign helps young women to choose a career path and expands their future prospects in technical professions they had not even thought about before.
We told them about virtual reality technology and its business applications. In the near future, with our company 4helpVR on board, we will be able to use VR technology to run health and safety and first aid courses here, thus showing VR in action as a ground-breaking training tool.
It was an event full of excitement and questions coming straight from the young generation of talented girls, who tested with our help how immersive technologies VR and AR can change the world. Students from PCKZiU in Jawor, ZSIP in Bolków and the European High School in Legnica experienced virtual and augmented reality. They had the opportunity to look through glasses used in industry, business and education. We, in turn, had an opportunity to observe the girls and the fascination with which they experienced the new VR sensation.
We would like to thank the organisers for giving us the ability to be part of this extraordinary initiative. This was not our first time in Jawor, but definitely our first in such a responsible and rewarding role. We would like to thank the participants, Dr Ewa Łabno-Falęcka and her Team #mbmpl.
