Our team at the National Cancer Institute at Frederick helped their own children and those of their NIH colleagues have a fun and inspiring day of discovery on June 27, 2023, during Take Your Child to Work Day. This event gave the kids a chance to see their parents’ daily contributions through various programs and hands-on activities involving scientific, information technology, and health-related topics—like applying the properties of liquid nitrogen to make ice cream. Because science!
DMS also established an informational Web page to promote the event, built a registration site for all attendees, and staffed the registration desk on-site as volunteers to help attendees check-in upon arrival.
Hopefully the next generation of passionate scientists and computer gurus will be in the making!
