Take Your Child to Work-From-Home Day

The fourth Thursday in April is normally reserved for “Take Your Child to Work Day,” but for many people, that has happened every day since lockdown started last year. As an homage, we bring you career exploration resources for kids little too big!

LITTLE: Explore the world of work with the A-Z Career Lab series.

MIDDLE: Somebody makes all your stuff – some of it comes from right here in CT! Cheyenne talks about the path to a manufacturing career.

BIGGER: Microbiology is an important field for renewable energy, and if you’re curious and perseverant, it might be the right field for you!
