Take your child to work day 2013

Today, Thursday April 25, is take your child to work day.  I had the privilege of participating at an IBM event in Southbury, CT.   Roughly 40 students, ages 8-16, participated in a full morning of activities and talks including:

  • IBM Apprentice: two teams of owners and sellers had to stratagize on how to improve sales of a fictional company through the use of mobile technology
  • What do you know about mobile phones?
  • Green Data Center tour
  • Are we secure?
While this was the first take your child to work day I participated it, I have participated in similar events including National Engineer's Week.   It's a great feeling to be able to give something back to the community and share my expertise with young minds and to have fun in process!
