Ximedica Hosts Innovation Day with Providence Independent School Sophia Academy

May 4, 2016

On Wednesday, April 27th the Ximedica welcomed fifteen aspiring women engineers to their Providence office for a day of learning and creativity. The girls met with Ximedica’s women engineers, toured the facility, and even got to participate in their own developmental process of engineering a “chair” out of minimal items, including newspapers and duct tape. The group had a great time learning about the fundamentals of engineering. Check out some pictures from the day below and visit our Instagram page for more fun photos!
