Daughters and sons and airports

San Diego International Airport participates each year in the Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. This year on April 24 we tried something a little different. We wanted the kids to have fun, while at the same time learn something about what makes an airport operate.

Their morning was filled with a Scavenger Hunt. Each team was given a list of 75 questions or statements to complete. Part of their task was to create a photo journal of the hunt. The afternoon was spent creating this special web page in the ‘Just For Kids’ section of the airport’s Web site. The children also created posts for the Goodwill Ambassablog, so they could share their feelings about how they spent the day at the airport. Stay tuned for those posts right here, soon!

In the meantime, click here and you will be brought to this map with 17 clickable points on it, all of which link directly to pages created by the kids who participated. It was a blast. See for yourself!

  1. We had a great time taking these young adults through the process of telling their stories on the Web. Everyone ran (we had 90 minutes to create 17 Web pages) through their tasks using industry-standard programs Dreamweaver and Photoshop. In the end, I think they did a great job capturing the essence of each point in the Hunt. And I love the personal profiles we were able to create for each page. Very cool. Jon Graves – Webmaster

  2. I am so impressed with the 20 kids that made up our Careers In Aviation (CIA as we like to call them!) group this year! I am not sure who gets more out of this…me or them? The Web Page was AWESOME! And definitely check back reall soon to see the comments by the kids! Thanks to everyone who helped make it a very special day for all of the kids!
