Click2ComputerScience.org launched in 2021. This site’s is focused on the intersection of computational thinking and positive youth development. It’s mission is to create and deliver learning experiences that prepare youth to be creative, to lead, and to find their full potential through computer science.
Click2ComputerScience uses a blend of self-directed and facilitated learning for out-of-time educators and volunteers, for teen leaders, and for computer science professionals committed to broadening participation in computing. Resources here are focused on developing the capacity to understand and teach computer science, and to engage youth in meaningful, impactful learning experiences. Like the Click2Engineering site, we’ve collated a variety of computer science learning activities for out-of-school time programs.
Click2Engineering.org launched in 2022 to transform out-of-school time engineering education and support professional learning for educators. Our mission is to you and your staff understand engineering and lead authentic engineering experiences that help young people develop an engineering mindset.
The website provides resources and professional learning opportunities for afterschool and other out-of-school-time educators in planning and leading engineering activities for youth. Engineering is a fun way for youth to develop their STEM knowledge and skills, by engaging them in real-world problem-solving activities. On this site, educators can learn more about engineering and how to lead great engineering activities with youth.
