Data Visualizations and Computer Programming– Child’s Play!

A gang of young Rhizans hijacked the office on Thursday to take part in a two hour series of fun office activities. Rhiza celebrated Bring Your Kids to Work Day on Thursday by inviting all employees to bring their kids in for an afternoon filled with fun, snacks, and creative activities.

Ten kids, ranging in age from 4 to 10, took the office by storm and participated in several games that included creating a city out of cardboard boxes (complete with parks, a co-op and bike lanes), making visualizations with Post-It notes and bar graphs, and programming a robot to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. The result was a combination of chaos, creative thinking, and a ton of fun. The event allowed kids to use creativity, work in a team environment and eat healthy snacks while exposing them to some of the themes and concepts that run deep at Rhiza.

While yesterday’s program was uniquely created for this year’s Take Your Kids to Work Day, Rhiza actually let’s employees bring their kids to work any day. The company’s “kids in the workplace policy” is just one of the many perks of being a Rhiza employee, and allows parents to bring their children to work any time– a super convenient policy for parents during snow days and in the summer months.
