Kids at Autodesk Day – Portland 2019

This is always one of my favorite days of the year and it was held in the Autodesk Portland office yesterday. We had over 60 kids of our employees show up for a day filled with fun activities, snacks, food, and even robot rides.

There is never a bad day, when you get to ride robots and make new buddies!

Our kids are the future, and it is always inspiring when they come for the day for the Kids at Autodesk Day. I have seen many kids grow up over the years in our Autodesk family and I'm anxiously counting down to the next Kids at Autodesk Day. Thank you to Autodesk, volunteers, parents, and to the kids for making such a special day and memories.
