About Take your Child to Work Day

Our goal is to introduce children to the vital public services that their parents provide in support of the campus mission and to encourage future careers in science. All employees are welcome to bring their children, ages 6 to 13, to work if approved by the employee's supervisor.

Rain or Shine!

Remember to bring:

  • closed-toe shoes
  • hat
  • rain coat or umbrella
  • sunscreen
