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!
