See How Parker Inspires the Next Generation of Engineers
As you may have heard, in April we got a chance to bring our children to work. Parker EM&D employees were excited to teach our kids about the importance of safety and how it is incorporated into our daily work. We laughed at jokes, learned about 3D printers, and built a T-slot Aluminum Framing Dog named Sparky! We challenged our sales team to come up with a design, using the Parker T-Slot Aluminum Design Architect (TADA), that would be a great tool for kids to learn how to assemble the T-slot aluminum framing project, as well as a nice takeaway after the project was complete.
