At the event organized by the Association FIT Sprungbrett at Vienna University of Technology more than 200 schoolgirls were informed about opportunities to undertake studies and start a career in the area of natural sciences and technologies. Universities, universities of applied science, non-university institutions and enterprises were taking part and answered the numerous questions on studies, grants, career paths and so on. The AIT was represented by Dr. Susanne Windischberger as an expert to be questioned and by Johanna Spreitzhofer as master student talking about her experience at an information booth.

In the afternoon practical workshops were organized at numerous sites.
The girls could e.g. experience with Shokufeh Zamini at AIT how photovoltaic modules are analyzed in the sun simulator and UV-chamber. Moreover, they could feel how cold or hot the climate chambers are, where PV-modules are tested by creating icy environmental conditions or tropical climates. The girls were delighted to take infrared pictures not only from hot diodes in the photovoltaic modules but also eternalize their own infrared pictures.
