With the organisation of the SPECIAL SHOW FOR YOUNG PEOPLE the Nachwuchsstiftung Maschinenbau wanted to make young people enthusiastic about technology and a job in the machine tools industry and thus acquire skilled workers for the German engineering industry in the long run. Within the framework of guidance on career choice, the importance of the machine tools industry is being brought to the attention of young qualified professionals through targeted activities.
The "highlight" for the young people and all other stand visitors was the creation of a process chain. The process chain was used to demonstrate to students a production and design process from the drawing to assembly live on-site. The students made a Formula 1 model car. In particular the process chain helped to highlight the attractiveness and diverse education and training opportunities of the industry to young people. This positive development should be continued in the coming years with support from the partners. Everyone who builds such a racing car will show it to their friends and acquaintances in school and talk about the great day at the stand of the SPECIAL SHOW FOR YOUNG PEOPLE. This way young people become disseminators for the machine tools industry.
