More than 150 City Light employees and their children participated in City Light’s annual “Take Our Daughters/Sons to Work” day, held at the South Service Center this past Thursday. This event provides a great way for children to learn about what their parents do on a daily basis here at Seattle City Light.

Workshop sessions included hands-on projects and demonstrations that kids and adults could both participate in. These included trips to the steel, machine, electric, carpentry, paint, and transformer shops, where children took home a newly painted birdhouse or tool box.

In the classroom, kids were treated to a number of activities, including a fire extinguisher demonstration, a glacier model using ice cream and cookies, and a hands-on project creating a stable structure from gum drops and toothpicks.

Activities that were held outside were also a popular turnout. Families had the opportunity to take their photo next to a City Light big rig, view a demonstration of a tower and vault rescue, and learn about how an electric car works.
