Throwback 1999 – BliK (Berufe live im Klassenzimmer)

KELLER brought together schools and companies in 1999 as part of the “Berufe live im Klassenzimmer” (BliK) program to overcome prejudices against “blue-collar professions.”

By utilizing the “Qplus” software (predecessor to our current CNC software SYMplus™), students were able to independently create workpieces, which were then implemented by partner companies. The result? Enthusiasm from all involved, with almost two-thirds of the youth seriously considering pursuing a “blue-collar profession.”

An inspiring glimpse into an initiative that encouraged young people to explore new career paths.
