Hannah and Neela decided to do an internship during their summer vacation and were allowed to get to know the working world of TOS. In the process, the schoolgirls, supervised by TOS employees, were allowed to get a taste of various specialist areas. For example, they took measurements with a laser, created a cell phone lens, implemented their own creative ideas with the 3D printer, and created a wooden box with the laser cutter and decorated it with a design.

“I'm thinking about studying physics or mechanical engineering, and the internship gave me an idea of what everyday work might be like later on. Everyone really put a lot of effort into it,” says Hannah. Neela even came all the way from California for the internship at TOS. In addition to visiting family, she wanted her stay to be educational.
