We are thrilled to have brought our g4g@work concept to Croydon, United Kingdom, with our global partner AIG, a leading global insurance company!
A special group of 60 girls aged spent the day at the Croydon AIG office engaged in hands-on and interactive workshops, learning all about cutting edge virtual reality, programming code, statistics with chocolate, extracting your own DNA with household materials - and so much more! They had the chance to be mentored by role model professionals while getting a glimpse into the everyday life of inspiring technicians and engineers.
