Children learn 'possibilities for their lives' at Bring a Child to Work Day

Nearly 400 children, accompanied by 320 parents, took advantage of the 65 learning sessions that were offered at Cornell's Bring a Child to Work Day, April 28. More than 40 groups provided the learning sessions, which included a behind-the-scenes look at Cornell athletics; hands-on introduction to Indonesian gamelan music; introduction to television, radio and magazines; look at careers in the fashion industry; spiders; a tour of Minns Gardens and of the Cornell chimes; and a session on robot-building.

"Children learn so much about the possibilities for their lives from all the sessions, and parents get to share a sense of pride in their work," said Cheryl McGraw, event coordinator. "I would especially like to thank those groups who provided more than one learning session: the Vet College, Cornell Dining, the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies, Cornell University Library, and Cornell Athletics and Physical Education," she said.
