Photo story: University units participate in Take Your Child to Work Day

Survival Flight and Michigan Administrative Information Services (MAIS) were among numerous University units that provided activities for the children of U-M faculty and staff during Take Your Child to Work Day, April 26. At top left, John Bullen, flight nurse specialist, shows Trevor Merrill-Forrester and Dylan Campbell the features of one of the Survival Flight helicopters. Merrill-Forrester is the son of Jodi Forrester, administrative associate, Procurement/Accounts Payable, and Campbell is the son of Robin Campbell, financial clerk, Financial Operations.

Children, such as Nolan Ferguson (top right), were amazed by the size of the helicopters, which were parked on one of Survival Flight’s helipads at University Hospital. Ferguson is the son of Robert Ferguson, occupational therapist, University Hospital. MAIS sponsored sessions for children on skydiving, food preparation and technology in aviation. At bottom, Mark McManamy, technologist, demonstrates how a jump suit works in skydiving. With arms outstretched, the suit creates a wing and allows its wearer to maneuver through the sky. The feet also have a special design to help users ‘fly.’ Survival Flight photos by Marcia L. Ledford, U-M Photo Services. MAIS photo by Paul Jaronski, U-M Photo Services
