Inspiring STEM Outreach: Take Your Child to Work Day

Chicago Hitachi Hightech America

For Bring Your Child to Work Day this year, we brought Tabletop Electron Microscope to the Chicago office of Hitachi High-tech America. Twelve children, ages 5 to 14, had come to work with their parents that day. Many of the kids were looking forward to bringing in items to view under the microscope. The samples they brought in included plants such as leaves and flowers and bugs such as caterpillars and centipedes. The kids were impressed with how much more they could see beyond what was visible to the naked eye.
