Programs are the core component of Take Your Child to Work Day and gives participants an glimpse into the daily
activities of the staff at the NCI at Frederick Campus and Fort Detrick. They are usually an interactive activity,
and they run for a period of 45 minutes.
Many of the programs are highly interactive and so must be restricted by age and number of participants. As a result, children
must register for a Program in order to participate.
Activities are entertaining and engaging displays and/or tasks that have no set start or end time. Unlike programs,
children do not have to register for specific time periods in order to participate, however they do have to register
for the event itself.
The hub location offers an open area where participants can enjoy a variety of educational (and entertaining)
activities. These may range from animal education areas where children may interact with a variety of creatures,
to fun craft projects that allow each child to explore
their creativity. We often have a special visit by members of the armed forces and some of their equipment.
Indoor activities are located in the Science Room (426) and Building 549 Lobby.
Remember: participants must be registered for the event day, even though they are not required to register for
