Gunzenhausen/Auerbach/Germany, February 2015. The Falkenstein based web hosting company and data centre operator Hetzner Online is further extending its cooperation with the Goethe High School in Auerbach, Germany. Sofar, pupils have been able to take part in lectures on IT subjects and participate in guided tours of the company's data center park. Also planned is practical training on an hourly basis within the company to support IT teaching.
In view of this very successful cooperation, Hetzner Online equipped IT rooms and media work stations at the school with high quality computer hardware at the beginning of February. A total of 75 servers will be part of the school network in future and replace outdated technology.
IT staff and pupils are using the school holidays to make the PCs ready for use during term time. “Thanks to this donation, all of the PCs in the school network are now state-of-the-art, so that we can teach IT on a high level,” said School Director Martina Becker at the offical handover attended by IT staff, pupils and Hetzner Online representatives.
“As a result of this intensive collaboration, I am pleased to say that a large number of high school pupils are now interested in pursuing careers in the IT sector,” comments Sebastian Lippold, Personnel Officer at Hetzner Online.
Hetzner Online also offers work experience placements on a voluntary basis for pupils interested in the data centre, software development and electronics fields. Further information is available at jobs.hetzner.com.
