Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work® is a US-based program that promotes work-life balance and provides children an enriching educational experience by exposing them to the workplaces and jobs of their parents or guardians. The 2013 program will be on Thursday, April 25.

The Women Faculty Association (WFA) of HKUST is organizing this event at HKUST for the second time. Here is the web archive of TODS Day at HKUST in 2012.

Due to our resource constraints, we will accept around 30 children of primary school age (roughly 5-12 years old) along with their accompanying adults for the program. We will give priority to WFA members and volunteer hosts of the activities of the day.


The 2013 theme is Work in Progress. The following is a (partial) list of the activities for the day. Note that children will be accompanied by their adults all the time during the day and they may choose to skip any activities listed in the program.


Please download and fill out the application form, and send it to Qiong Luo/CSE (luo@ust.hk) at your earliest convenience. Space is limited and priority is given to children of activity hosts and WFA members.
