Last Thursday Karsun Solutions joined many other companies across the United States in celebrating Take Your Child to Work Day. They hosted children ages 8 through 13 at their Herndon, Virginia Headquarters. This year’s inaugural event encouraged guests to imagine a world where technology creates exciting jobs, homes and communities of the future. Using collages and worksheets participants brainstormed solutions to today’s challenges.
In the afternoon, Karsun hosted a presentation on the relationship between computers, software, networks and the cloud. Staff led an exercise where kids created their own private game servers on Agar.io. Co-founders Sundar Vaidyanathan and Kartik Mecheri joined a question and answer session on the organization’s role as enterprise modernization experts and government partners. Afterwards, children were invited to tour the office and visit with members of the Karsun team.
Events, like Take Your Child to Work Day, are a method to further nurture Karsun’s culture of personal and professional development. They are proud to develop opportunities like these connecting children to STEM careers. Creating spaces where employees, and their children, can engage in innovation is a core value for this growing organization.
