Using Technology to Create Moments that Click

Our work is personal. Often the best opportunities—to build connections or to make learning real—happen in the moment.

But these moments only happen when we plan and are prepared. Well-designed professional development gives our staff the resources they need to plan for effective learning and be prepared to maximize opportunities to connect and engage youth in STEM.

Click2SciencePD is an online resource for high-quality, interactive STEM PD developed by the University of Nebraska—Lincoln Extension in partnership with the Noyce Foundation.
