The sound of children's laughter filled Nortel's Richardson campus in early summer 2008 as approximately 200 children participated in a Take Your Kid to Work Day. Richardson's variation of having the events take place after school was out for the year was a successful "school's out" but "learning technology is in!" twist that engaged both kids and parents.Organized by the Richardson Business Councils, the event included tours and demos of the Solutions Showcase, MCS lab, Executive Briefing Center, and Telepresence Studio. In addition, the children also learned about the History of the Internet via video from Nortel LearniT's Discovering the Internet series and then demonstrated their knowledge playing Nortel LearniT's JeopardyiT game. To break up the day and add some physical activity, they learned a Nortel cheer and our Aralia staff hosted an exercise session.
