Moments that Click.There are moments in each of our lives when something clicks. When we get it. As if someone turned a key, opening up a world we didn’t know existed. Illuminating opportunities that we couldn’t see. In that moment, challenges we'd struggled with seem miles in our past and anything is possible. Maybe the "click" gives us the confidence we need to pass 10th grade chemistry. Or, the realization that nothing in the world is more fascinating than exploring robotics. Maybe the "click" is imagining ourselves grown up, solving our city’s infrastructure problems or helping animals migrate to more suitable climate. Or, sharing our passion for science with kids. Click2Science empowers out-of-school staff to create moments like these for America’s youth. Moments that Click.
