An ice cold JOM

Published on 21.11.2017

For the national “Dare to Try Any Profession Day” (JOM) on November 9, eighteen children accepted the invitation of BG. It was the opportunity for them to discover the fascinating job of engineer. Organised every year, the JOM enables children aged between 11 and 13 to learn about the work of one of their parents, with no bias from gender stereotypes. 

After a breakfast and a very interesting presentation on the job of planner-electrician by Anthony Bianchi, who also spoke about the intricacies of lighting in an ice rink, the whole team courageously braved the cold for a visit to the Malley temporary ice rink, where Jacqueline de Blasio, sales and sponsoring advisor, cordially received us.

With explanations and a demonstration of the ice machine, a tour of the master control room and the videotron system, followed by a visit to the equipment room, changing rooms, treatment room and strength training facilities, the children learned a lot of exciting things and also had the pleasure and good fortune of watching a training session of the Lausanne Hockey Club first-string team. The stars signed posters for our budding engineers, each of whom also received a souvenir puck.

Back at BG, everyone enjoyed a lunch of delicious burgers and luscious chocolate mousse. In the afternoon, the children had the pleasure of spending time with their parents and were able to get a closer look at their activities and the many facets of the engineering profession. The afternoon snack brought this great day to a close.

The JOM at BG promises to be an important event for years to come!
