Take Your Child To Work Day - 2014 Registration Open

The NIH will host the 19th annual Take Your Child to Work Day (TYCTWD) on Thursday, April 24, 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. You are invited to bring your school-age child (grades 1 – 12) to NIH for a day of discovery and exploration at our nation’s medical research agency!

Starting today through April 9, you will be able to enter your child’s name and browse over 100 activities on the TYCTWD registration site! This is a 'sneak peek' opportunity to look at the available activities in advance. Actual registration begins on April 10.

The site is secure and easy to access from your desktop at work or VPN from home using your PIV badge to log in. Features include: secure online registration; custom filters that make finding activities that interest your child a snap; print-friendly pages; and, confirmation e-mails.
