Girls and Technology: students implement project

As participants of the project “Girls and Technology” ten students from Johannes-Kepler-Gymnasium (High School) in Leonberg worked at LEWA to get an insight into the professional life of an industrial company. They were assigned to design and build something that is of use to their school.

The girls decided to make a steel couch for the school’s recreation room. With the help of trainer Thomas Steiger and LEWA’s apprentices they completed the piece of furniture within only a week. During that time, they learned how to treat materials like wood and metal properly and how to operate various machines. In the planning phase the students designed the project using CAD.
