The next Informatiktage in the greater Zurich area will take place from March 27 to April 1, 2023. The offer is aimed at school classes, teachers as well as children and young people. In addition to universities, and other organizations, companies such as SIX will also be taking part.
We warmly welcome all interested children and young people, as well as their parents or other attendant to our open day on April 1, 2023.
With us, young people can experience the world of computer science, find out about career opportunities, and start programming themselves right away. In addition, children can ask questions directly to our apprentices, write their first lines of programming code in one of the workshops or listen to exciting presentations. We also offer career choice checks and organize a competition.
IT professions are versatile professions
The day at SIX also aims to debunk common prejudices. "We also want to go some way to counteracting the impression that IT only consists of mathematics. You can't do it completely without it, but knowledge of English, abstract thinking skills and the ability to work in a team are just as important," says Diego Suter, IT Apprentice Manager at SIX.
Do you have children, godchildren, nieces and nephews, or do you know families in your area where the choice of career is currently an issue? Draw attention to the opportunity to visit and come along. It's worth it, even for adults. Parents and accompanying adults can join in the children's activities or take part in a guided tour of SIX headquarters. Before or after, the Café West in the same building invites you to have a bite to eat and stay a while.
