NIH's 23rd Annual "Take Your Child to Work Day".
Thursday, April 27, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.
Bring your children in grades 1-12 and inspire them to explore career paths in science and public service at our nation's biomedical research agency. Together, you and your children can choose from over 100 activities, from exploring NIH labs and technology, to being a hands-on genetic researcher, to learning about the day-to-day life of social workers, chemists, dieticians, peer reviewers and more.
Children in grades 6-12 will also be able to register to volunteer to help with activities and may be able to earn Student Service Learning (SSL) credit, if offered by your school or school district. Please check with your school's SSL coordinator to find out if this volunteer opportunity meets your school's requirements.
Encourage your co-workers, your supervisors, and your colleagues/friends in other Divisions/ICs to participate and mark your calendars. Key registration dates are listed below:
- March 16 at 12pm: Pre-registration (Site opens for you to enter your child/ren's information and preview activities ONLY).
***New this year! This year's registration will be conducted in two phases.***
- March 30 at 12pm: Registration Phase 1 (Register child/ren for up to 2 limited space activities each).
- April 6 at 12pm: Registration Phase 2 (Register child/ren for up to 2 additional limited space activities for a maximum of four limited space activities).
Please note that only four limited space activities are allowed per child. Open space activities do not count towards the limit. More information will be sent out in March, so look for upcoming announcements via e-mails and Twitter.
