Last week twelve young ladies from grade 8 of primary school de Triangel from Delfgauw visited BPO as part of Girlsday 2019.
The day is an initiative of VHTO and aims to introduce girls at a young age to science studies and technology.
The girls were welcomed by our female engineers with an extensive introduction to BPO. The BPO people talked about their own career, the study they have followed and their work as an engineer at BPO. Afterwards there was a tour at BPO; in particular the 3D printers were appreciated.
As an assignment, the girls have designed a chair under supervision and that has resulted in great sparkling ideas.
Perhaps in the coming decade the students will support designing Netherlands with their technical and creative skills!
Plastic product development is our specialty. Since 1987, BPO has been the agency for technical product development. Our team consists of enthusiastic and dedicated employees, including industrial designers, mechanical experts, material and production specialists and project leaders.
