2017 Stories – 20 – Take Your Kid to Work Day

Take your kid to work day was a few weeks ago and even though I was scheduled to take each kid, David decided he didn’t want to miss school. Nathaniel had no such concern so off we went!

We played with this fun Android emoji thing first.

You make a face and it turns it into an emoji.

Nathaniel had quite a bit of fun with it.

He kept trying to stick his tongue out which I think wasn’t a setting they had.

Then he built a lego robot. 

He was very attentive.

putting on the axels I think.

Almost there.

And here we are. He then got to race it down a lego track.


Next up was Coding with Chrome.  

He spent time chatting with all of them.

He got to code this robotic arm to pick up the chess pieces you see in the back and drop them to the green bucket. He did it in record time and it was awesome!

Then he made some paper parachutes and put them into a wind tunnel to see how well they did.

And then we looked at the dinos.

I told him he had to do a different pose and this is what I got.

But of course he can’t help himself 🙂

Looking for fossils.

He was in such a happy mood the whole time.

We went to see a bunch of animals they were showing (from Africa.)

And finally we went back to the cafe to have lunch with my friend Ramesh who was here from Sydney and then had some ice cream (him) and coffee (me) before it was time to head home.

We took some photos together and you can see he really had fun.

And that was it for Take Your Kid to Work Day. All in all, I think we can call it a success.
