During week 21, Plan B in Gothenburg was visited by high school students Ella and Simon from Klarebergsskolan. They chose to do their 3-day internship with us after Engineers without Borders had been in contact with the school to inspire students to try the engineering profession.
Edona Binaku, information coordinator at Plan B, supervised the two students during their internship.
-Role models are very important when it comes to inspiring and motivating young people. Plan B’s local collaboration with EWB in Gothenburg is focused on reaching out to young students and hopefully arousing or strengthening an interest in the engineering profession, says Edona and continues:
-We have a special focus on girls, because we want to se considerably more female engineers in our society. It felt nice to be able to show both Ella and Simon that we are as many women as med in our office and hopefully they both carry that picture of how it can be to work as an engineer.
During internship, Ella and Simon got to model a house in Revit. They found inspiration from Beverly Hills and they were super happy with their result. After attending a BIM coordination meeting, they wanted to review their model in Solibri to avoid collisions in production.
Thank you, Ella and Simon, for fun and rewarding days!
