Girls Day 2023


What do cargo bikes, 3D printers, picking robots and IT systems have to do with logistics?
Fifteen schoolgirls got to the bottom of these questions on Girls Day 2023 and were able to get a first-hand look at the career and study field of logistics at a joint event organized by Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences with HUB31, LAB³ and with the support of the Darmstadt Chamber of Industry and Commerce and AEP Solutions GmbH. “It was important to us that the students experience logistics in a very practical and fun way. That’s when we came up with the idea of a process rally,” said Prof. Dr. Monika Futschik and Prof. Dr. Johanna Bucerius.
At the event, the students were able to place, pick and pack orders themselves and deliver them on cargo bikes. Finally, the students learned how to print out a spare part for the cargo bike using a 3D printer directly at HUB31. “It was really great to see how enthusiastic the girls were, how they asked questions and went home with their eyes shining. We would love to do this again,” says Hermann Fedra, Managing Director of AEP Solution GmbH.
