Why Are These Kids Crawling Through a 'Giant Blood Vessel?'

Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day focuses on the promise of biotechnology.

Biotechnology leader CSL Behring hosted children for Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day including one who had the chance to crawl through a giant mock blood vessel

Nearly 100 children were on-site at CSL Behring in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania for the company’s annual recognition of Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. The kids participated in a variety of activities while learning about the biotechnology leader, its science and the rare and serious disease patients who rely on the company for lifesaving medicines.

During one activity, the kids learned all about blood and its components such as platelets, red and white blood cells and its clotting factors. Children ended the activity by crawling through a “giant blood vessel” filled with stuffed representations of these components.
