Niacet Tiel opens doors for Girlsday on April 23, 2015
On Girlsday, a huge number of technology companies, higher education institutions and science centers all open their doors for girls aged 10 to 15. The girls are offered the opportunity to participate in interesting activities organized specially for them, and to see first-hand how science and technology are used in everyday professional practice.
The Niacet site in Tiel will participate for the second time this year and will welcome a group of girls in the age of 12-15 years. A group of, mainly female, employees will welcome the girls and give some presentations. Besides a plant tour the girls will also get a chance to perform some laboratory experiments to learn something about chemistry.
Girlsday is an initiative devised by VHTO, the Dutch national expert organization on girls/women and science/technology, to encourage girls to become familiar with science, technology and ICT from a young age. This national event takes place annually in April, this year on April 23th.
