Engineering, science and teamwork took center stage at this year's Bring Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day on April 27. Hundreds of children visited our campuses across the country and participated in various activities that included launching bottle rockets, touring facilities and shadowing their parents. Take a look at a few snapshots of the day's activities from Orbital ATK locations in Arizona, Minnesota, Virginia and Maryland.
