Girlsday 2019

Cordeel once again participating in Girlsday

Today, some 27 girls from Walburg College paid a visit to our head office in Zwijndrecht. It marked Cordeel’s participation in Girlsday, a VHTO initiative aimed at stimulating and increasing girls’ interest in STEM careers, including those in the construction industry, from an early age.

We welcome diversity in our organisation and hope to inspire these girls to choose exciting careers in the sector. To offer insight into what we do, several colleagues and students gave talks on various topics ranging from studying construction and career opportunities to working in the industry. The girls were also able to explore a 3D model of the Hellevoetsluis Sports Complex thanks to the use of VR glasses. 

Divided into three groups, the girls were tasked with building a section of the sports complex – the swimming pools, the other sports facilities and the restaurant – using Lego. The final assignment was to put the three construction solutions together, like pieces of a puzzle, to form a whole. After an active and rewarding morning, the girls returned to school with some great goody bags.
