. The pupils were then fascinated when we showed them direct and alternating current on an oscilloscope and the group also had no problems understanding the PIKO Solar Portal. Dr. Armin von Preetzmann, Vice President of R&D, and Markus Vetter, Head of Marketing and Communication, were surprised at how keen and motivated our group was to complete the tasks and were amazed when all their hands shot up when jointly comparing solutions. In the afternoon we joined Uwe Schulz, Head of Production Planning, and Rocco Maroni, Production Shift Supervisor, in production to watch a PIKO being manufactured first hand.
Because this was the first time that the pupils had had any contact with a company, in small groups we worked through the jobs of the individual departments and the relevant internal and external relationships.
