Young students get acquainted with fluorescence microscopy

Girls' Day 2018

Last week two groups of young females (age 10 and up) visited the premises of PicoQuant during this years Girls’ Day and met women in leadership positions in both research and business. The other highlight of the tour was the hands-on workshop where the girls learned about how to “make the invisible visible” thanks to fluorescence and light microscopy. The Girls’ Day is a yearly event hosted in Germany by research institutes and companies alike from the technical sector with the aim of enabling young females to gain insights into professions where women are still underrepresented.
