View from Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day
On February 21st, Ximedica participated in its fourth annual Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (see last year’s event here). The day is sponspored by the National Engineers Week Foundation, and encourages organizations to promote female participation in engineering and the sciences. We have compiled some photos from Thursday’s event below. Female employees (and some of their male counterparts) gave local high school students a peek into the world of mechanical, software, electrical, and design assurance engineering, as well as industrial design and process management.
It’s safe to say that this year’s Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day was a great success! We want to thank Bay View Academy and Lincoln School for participating, and we hope that some of the girls have been inspired to pursue science or tech-related careers.
