Dallas Employees Help Make Science Fun for Local Children
For their Q2 community event, Dallas employees volunteered at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science to help children explore the museum.
The volunteers helped make science fun for more than 1,600 children visiting the museum for field trips that day. They scanned tickets, distributed museum maps and facilitated hands-on exhibits. They also hosted activities building robots, conducting science experiments and doing crafts.
“I loved seeing Quorum folks outside of the work environment and in a more personal setting,” said Senior Vice President Corey House. “Unsurprisingly, I observed the same focus and drive to help those around them towards a common goal, as they targeted their efforts to helping kids stretch their STEM muscles on the fun activities at the Perot Museum.”
“I really enjoyed seeing how excited the children got when they were engaging in hands-on activities and experiments at the museum,” said Manager Lindsey Farrar, who coordinated the event. “It was also fulfilling to see how appreciative the staff members and regular volunteers were to receive helping hands from Quorum team members on a busy day at the museum!”
“It’s always impressive to see the impact our team can collectively have within our local area,” said Strategic Account Manager Larry Dowell. “The museum was a fun way to interact with the students from area schools with diverse backgrounds. While each task we performed was small in nature, together, we made a difference with the staff, the students and their leaders and chaperones.”
