Kids Card

At Penn, we understand the importance of raising a family and providing children with positive and productive experiences early on.  That’s why we take the opportunity each year to host Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day—an annual event that encourages, inspires and introduces youngsters to the workplace.

Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day will take place this year on Thursday, April 23. Faculty and staff will have the opportunity to bring children ages 9–15 to Penn’s campus to enjoy an exciting array of activities. 

Registration for the event will begin on Thursday, April 9 at 8 a.m.  Some of the activities planned this year include:

• Exploring the Penn Museum

• Cupcake decorating

• Career discovery

• Rock climbing

• Nutrition lessons: Eat This or Eat That?

• Touring Penn's Robotics Lab in the School of Engineering and Applied Science

• Visiting WXPN, Penn's public radio station

• Physics lesson on static electricity

• Science experiments with the Society of Women Engineers

• Getting a personalized Penn KidsCard  to commemorate the day

You’ll also have the opportunity to stop by the PennCard Center and get a free, specially-designed souvenir Penn KidsCard to commemorate your day on campus.  The PennCard Center will take your child’s photo and print his or her very own KidsCard while you wait. The cards come in two designs: one for younger kids and one for older kids (pictured).

Keep in mind that pre-registration is required to attend the activities and participants must have supervisory approval and accompany their young guests to all activities.  For more information, visit www.hr.upenn.edu or contact Human Resources at (215) 898-0380 or qowl@hr.upenn.edu.
