At Movable Ink, we’re pretty passionate about creating amazing experiences. That’s why we were so excited for Bring Your Child to Work Day.
Each team at the company had the opportunity to present on their area of expertise – sales, design, engineering, and marketing for example – and the kids discovered what their parents do all day.
During the design workshop, the kids were challenged to design a prototype of a device that would alleviate “text neck.” It was a huge hit!
Check out these future designers/inventors/entrepreneurs in action!
They learned all about coding and what’s it’s like to be an engineer here at Movable Ink.
In between workshops, the kids ran their own lemonade stand in our kitchen so they could hone their marketing and sales skills. They raised $47 for Alex’s Lemonade Stand!
And they LOVED our whiteboards, too.
We wanted to write a blog post describing all of the amazing things the kids got to experience. (Even if they were mostly just stoked about the snacks. Who can blame them? Everyone loves snacks.)
But then we thought – Why not let the kids tell us in their own words what they learned today?
So during our marketing workshop, we asked the kids a few questions about the highlights of their day at Movable Ink – and they were excited to learn that their answers would be featured on our blog.
So, without further ado, here is our very first blog post curated by the kids of Movable Ink:
What did you learn today at Movable Ink?
“I learned what my dad does for work!”
“I learned that marketing is storytelling.”
“I learned all about sales and persuasion … like how to persuade my parents to do something.”
What surprised you about your visit the Movable Ink office?
“I was surprised that I found candy.”
“All the snacks and candy!”
“That you build cool stuff.”
If you had your own business, what would it be?
“A dance teacher at a dance school.”
“Creating video game tutorials on YouTube.”
“Building Lego houses.”
“Me too! Lego houses!”
[And so a partnership is born.]
How would you decorate your own office?
“With a snack stand and video games.”
” With furniture.”
What types of people would you hire?
“Good people who are nice and well-organized. And not late!”
Big thanks to all the kids and parents who participated! We’ll leave you with this incredible piece of art:
