Technical career profiles among young people


The project aims to bring about an increase in interest in research, technology and innovation among young people. To this end, novel educational offerings are to be developed and implemented that deal with technology professions in changing times, provide children and young people with opportunities to gain initial insights and try out these areas, and enable them to experience future-relevant technologies and activities. 


The project is intended to reach children and young people in Vorarlberg in particular, who find few points of contact with Engineering and Technology in their everyday lives. With this in mind, the project aims to get girls in particular, as well as children and young people with a migration background, interested in content and activities, and to introduce them to forward-looking career opportunities in these technological fields.
