NOTE TO EDITORS: NASA WORKERS SHARE DAY WITH SONS

On June 14, Johnson Space Center employees will share their work day with young men 9 to 15 years old as they observe "Bring Your Sons to Work" day.

"This day gives boys the opportunity to see their parents at work," said Estella Hernandez Gillette, Director of Equal Opportunity Programs. "They will get the chance to understand the unique environment we have at JSC and see first-hand the value of the work their parents do."

About 400 employees and their sons are expected to participate in Wednesday's "Bring Your Sons to Work" celebration. The day begins at 8 a.m. in Teague Auditorium with a welcome to JSC followed by technology demonstrations. Astronaut Tom Henricks, set to command July's STS-70 mission, also will talk about his experiences in space and the challenges and rewards of a technical career.

Following the morning presentations, each boy will spend the day with his parent or adult sponsor observing and sharing in a normal day's work.
