Description: The first and only kid to receive an NIH "grant" will share his story at the 2008 Take Your Child to Work Day. When Terence Boylan was 9 years old in 1957, he sent a request to NIH for $10 to build a better rocket ship. Against all odds, Terence got a little NIH “grant.” His story will show how wonderful things happen when we invest in researchers and kids with big ideas and dreams. For more information, visit
