SAVE THE DATE: NIH Take Your Child To Work Day -- Thursday, April 23

Save the Date!
NIH’s 20th Annual "Take Your Child to Work Day"
Thursday, April 23, 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. More information and the all-important registration details will be sent out in March, so look for upcoming announcements via e-mails and Twitter.
