NAWCTSD employees brought their kids to see their workplaces and get a better understanding of their parents’ jobs in the parent/child program, which returned to the Naval Support Activity (NSA) Orlando campus after a two-year absence due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bring Your Kids to Work Day featured several activities for parents to bond with their kids, and for the kids to learn.
“We had hands-on STEM activities, lab tours and robotics demonstrations that appealed to school-aged kids, and fun activities like a bounce house, water slide and train rides for the younger kids,” said Navy Capt. Tim James, NAWCTSD’s executive officer. “There really was something for everyone. I’m already looking forward to next year to see how we can make it even better.”
The event also featured and promoted careers in the military and the STEM field, as well as a motivational boost for Team Orlando employees.
“Teammates work most effectively when they know that they are valued and their work matters, and I believe that events like Bring Your Kids to Work Day are essential to morale,” said Navy Capt. Dan Covelli, NAWCTSD’s commander. “Giving our teammates an opportunity to show their loved ones the important work we do pays huge dividends. Not only do the kids get to be inspired by the prospect of one day entering the workforce themselves, but our teammates get to see their efforts publicly appreciated.”
The next Bring Your Kids to Work Day at the NSA campus is scheduled for April 27, 2023.
