on Thursday, March 30, 2023 it's that time again: Girls'Day! A national initiative that aims to make girls between the ages of 10 and 15 enthusiastic about science, technology and ICT. 

This year, several companies within the Innovatiecluster Drachten are participating in this national initiative, namely SRON, ASTRON, Resato, BD and Philips.

During Girls'Day, girls can discover what opportunities the technical world has to offer and how much fun it can be to work in it. In this way we want to show that technology and innovation are not only something for boys, but also for girls. 

Interactive workshops and guided tours give the girls the opportunity to experience in practice what is involved in developing innovative products and technologies.
